A programme for children under five
Nursery rhymes, stories, and music
Jimmy, Woppy, and Squeaker-a boy, a dog, and a squeaking toy pig, members of the three separate worlds of humans, animals, and toys. That, at least, is the adult view. But it is not that of our under fives. ' What artificial division is this? ' they would ask. ' There is only one world; children, animals, and toys are all in it together, playing the same games, thinking the same thoughts, experiencing the same emotions.
And that explains in part why Jimmy,
Woppy, and Squeaker, in the stories by K. G. White , give them so much satisfaction, for the relationships of these three boon companions mirror exactly their own conception of a world in which there is no essential difference between children and animals, and between animate and inanimate.
Today our small listeners hear again from Julia Lang how the three friends played hide and seek, while tomorrow they have a new adventure. On Wednesday and Thursday Dorothy Smith tells another favourite story, ' Blackie the Coal Engine,' by Mary Cockett ; followed on Friday by Daphne Oxenford with Vera Badley 's tale, ' The Little Horse who said " No ".'

Mrs. Dale, the doctor's wife, records the daily happenings in the life of her family
Script by Lesley Wilson
Last week, as Mrs. Dale was leaving to visit Gwen at the nursing home, Mrs. Baker (Maisie Lawford's aunt) arrived. She asked Mrs. Dale to persuade Maisie to let her look after the young children. Mrs. Dale saw Maisie, but failed to change her mind. Susie Thompkins volunteered to help so that Maisie could keep on her full-time job. Bob was going to take Trudi for a drive in the country, but his car broke down. Peter Kingston and Jenny were passing by in Peter's car, so they made up a foursome. Peter suggested Bob should buy a new car and offered to lend him the money Bob telephoned Malcolm Reeves , a friend of Peter's, who said he could get him a second-hand car cheaply. Bob lunched with Reeves, saw the car and agreed to buy it. Mrs. Freeman told Mr. Dale she was spending Christmas with Mrs Cardew at an hotel. Richard Fulton informed Sally that Maud French had dropped the idea of writing an article about him. Sally said that he had Mrs. Freeman to thank.
