: LISTEN WITH MOTHER

A programme for children under five
'Why did the snail want to go to Australia? ' came a message ' from Christine.' Unfortunately Christine did not enclose her address so we were unable to reply, but if she listens on Wednesday, when Julia Lang retells the story ' From the Cabbage Patch to Australia,' by Mary Higson , she will find the answer. This tale was a general favourite. It made the children laugh. ' Charlie the Cat's Birthday,' by A. W. Orchard , caused laughter, too; so much,' wrote the mother of a four-year-old boy, ' that we missed most of the story. Please may we have it again fairly soon? ' So on Wednesday it will be told by Julia Lang. The storyteller tomorrow and on Thursday is Dorothy Smith with ' Barnaby's Bus,' by Ann Elliott , and ' Candy, the Lazy Kangaroo,' by Janet Lamb , which latter tale, when last broadcast, promoted an unexpected research by a grown-up who ' spent the entire afternoon reading the Encyclopaedia Britannica and learning about kangaroos instead of making scones for tea.' On Friday comes Daphne Oxenford with ' Andrew and the Pigeons,' by Margaret Purcell. The stories and nursery rhymes this week and next arc introduced by Catherine Edwards. Elizabeth A. Taylor

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.
