: LISTEN WITH MOTHER

A programme for children under five
' My four-year old daughter,' writes a mother, ' has been a staunch supporter of what she used to call " Listen and Smother " from the very beginning, and now she wants me to tell you that what we both so much enjoy is the music. One particular favourite is " Jack and Jilt " (the chords for " did whip her next " especially delight her). Will you please convey at least two listeners' appreciation to whoever plays the piano? ' Well, it is Ann Driver who plays the piano. She also makes the nursery-rhyme arrangements which delight so many children because of their imaginative interpretation of the spirit of the songs. This week, as usual, our small listeners will hear many of their favourite rhymes, including ' Jack and Jilt ' which comes tomorrow, and ' Pop goes the Weasel,* the newest addition to our repertoire.
For stories this week we have, today, one by Violet Statham about a toy rabbit; tomorrow, a ' Naughty Little Sister ' story by Dorothy Edwards ; on Wednesday, ' The Little Engine who was Afraid of Tunnels ' by Marjorie Thorne ; on Thursday, ' Fine Frosty Day' by Isla Davenport : and, on Friday, Ursula Hourihane 's animal story ' The Farmyard Band.' Elizabeth A. Taylor

: MRS. DALE'S DIARY

Script by Jonquil Antony
To be repeated tomorrow at 11.0 a.m. Miss Marchbanks, staying in Mrs. Freeman's flat white Mrs. Mountford's house was being converted into flats, continued to interfere with Dr. Dale's work. She confided to Mrs. Freeman that she would like to be the doctor's secretary. Sally bought Zenobia's trousseau as a present. At Berridges' concert the microphone system that Stan had installed went wrong. Mrs. Date was concerned in case Bob was held responsible, especially when he was sent for by one of the directors of Berridges. However, Bob was told that he was being sent to a branch shop at Sandbourne to organise a new department. Mrs. Dale and Mrs. Freeman, having tea in a new cafe in Parkwood Hill, overheard Isabel telling her husband she didn't know how Jim could stand his mother-in-law living with them. There was an embarrassing scene and Mrs. Freeman refused to accept any kind of apology from Isabel. Dr. Dale's new car arrived.

Many people dream of leaving Britain to start a new life in one of the Dominions or Colonies.
What are the prospects, how can it be done, what does it cost, and what sort of people are needed overseas ?

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.
