: LISTEN WITH MOTHER

A programme for children under five
Nursery rhymes, stories, and music
This programme is intended for pleasure and delight but once we heard that it was on the verge of promoting domestic strife. A father wrote about an argument between himself and his wife, the subject of which was the name of the music that closes our programme each day. We were glad to be able to restore harmony by writing, as requested, to the small son of the household (who, his father assured us, ' would be pleased to correct his mother and me on this point ') to tell him that this concluding piano duet is the Berceuse from the suite Dolly,' by Gabriel Fauré. And to judge from the number of enquiring letters we receive on this subject we are sure that the information will be welcomed by many other listeners. For stories this week, we have * Wee Geordie,' by Mary R. Campbell , told today by Dorothy Smith. Tomorrow and on Wednesday, Julia Lang tells two stories by Jean Sutcliffe about Charlie's Big Red Bus, and on Friday she returns with ' The Water Baby,' by Ruth Ainsworth , while on Thursday comes ' The Yellow Caravan,' by Nesta Nuttall , when the storyteller will be Daphne Oxenford.

: MRS. DALE'S DIARY

Mrs. Dale, the doctor's wife, records the daily happenings in the life of her family
Script by Toni Block
Last week Mr. Owen arrived at Virginia Lodge. He was determined that if Jenny left the drama school she would return to Wales wirh him. Bob tried to persuade him otherwise, but to no avail. Mr Fulton, rather surprisingly, took Jenny's side. He went and saw the principal of the drama school and arranged for her to meet the producer of a repertory company. Jenny, back again in the theatre, realised she could never leave it. Eventually it was decided she should return home for a week-end to tell her mother. Zenobia was hoping to buy a tittle shop, which had fallen empty in Gimlet Green, because she thought it might encourage Joe, her husband, to work. Maud French, driving Mrs. Freeman to Sally's cottage, saw the shop and decided she wanted it. Sally went to the auction on behalf of Zenobia and was outbid by Maud. Mrs. Freeman and Sally were furious, but as they were leaving the auction room Zenobia rushed up to say she had told Joe and found he had already got himself a iob.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
