: LISTEN WITH MOTHER

A programme for children under five
' Dorrotty Miff ,' says one, ' Doll-lady Sniff,' says another. But whatever their difficulty in pronouncing Dorothy Smith 's name, our under-fives had none in wholeheartedly receiving her into their circle of ' story ladies ' when she joined them four months ago, and today we welcome her back to the microphone for her second turn as storyteller. She will begin with a favourite story, ' The Cookie Bun ' by Jane Shaw, and tomorrow she will tell Jaene Dee's tale of Monty, the white mouse—white, at least, until he fell into the adventure related here. The remainder of the week is given to three stories of Lulupet and Toffee, two new ones and an old one. by Jane Alan. These tales, we hear, make our children laugh. They find the name ' Toffee ' excruciatingly funny for a teddy-bear, and when Toffee bows so low that he bumps his nose on the floor, or accidentally cuts off some of his fur and tries to stick it on again with honey, they are tickled enormously. We think they will find amusement, too, in ' Pop Goes the Weasel,' the new rhyme which is introduced into the programmes during the week. Elizabeth A. Taylor

: MRS. DALE'S DIARY

Script by Lesley Wilson
Last week Richard Fulton and Gwen set out for Wales where they expected to collect material for a book. The Dales' household was less peaceful than usual as Dr. Dale had insisted on keeping his New
Year resolution not to smoke and Bob was depressed because Jenny still refused to speak to him. Gwen and Richard Fultol went for a country walk. Fog came down and they were lost for some time. They were not able to telephone to Mrs. Owen, who became anxious when they did not arrive. She rang the Dales who were also very worried until everything was explained the next morning by Gwen. Their anxiety about Gwen had one good result-Dr. Dale started to smoke his pipe, to the relief of his family.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
