: LISTEN WITH MOTHER

A programme for children under five
Nursery rhymes, stories, and music
Children have always needed dolls, creatures they can smack or caress according to their mood. In their company the child plays out the situations it has observed in the grown-up world. It is not surprising, then, that both girls and boys love stories about dolls in all their forms, and that they have asked so often to hear again those by Jane Alan about Lulupet, the kind, capable doll, and Toffee, "the funny teddy-bear. Julia Lang tells these stories today, tomorrow, and on Wednesday. On Thursday follows a realistic story called ' Winifred and the Lamb.' by E. R. Hutl , and on Friday, ' The Lost Boots.' by E. Rogers , both told by Daphne Oxenford.

: Mrs. Dale's Diary

Mrs. Dale, the doctor's wife. records the daily happenings in the life of her family
Script by Jonquil Antony
Last week Sally persuaded Grandfather Dale to assemble the jig-saw puzzle that Dr. Dale had given him. To Mrs. Dale's relief he became very absorbed in it and quite happily stayed in his bedroom till lunch-time. When, with the help of Mrs. Freeman, it was nearly completed, Captain jumped onto the puzzle and scattered it.Grandfather
Dale and Mrs. Freeman, Grandfather Dale insisting that he was going to stay until he had completed the puzzle. Mrs. Morgan was upset because MaRgs was unhappy lodging with Mrs. Mustoe; and Dotty refused to be solaced. Mrs Freeman went to see Dotty and suggested that Mrs. Humphries would be glad of her help. Elaine Allardyce asked Mrs. Dale if she would look after Timothy because she had a date with a young man from South Africa. Isabel Fielding, who had met the young man, said he was going to propose to Elaine. This worried Mrs. Dale, because, as Dr. Dale remarked, she had set her mind on having Elaine as a daughter-in-law. However, it transpired that Elaine refused him because of Christopher and Timothy.

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.
