: LISTEN WITH MOTHER

A programme for children under five
Nursery rhymes, stories, and music
Many of what were, until recently, our 'under-fives ' are now experiencing their first few weeks in the exciting new world of school. Many of them, no doubt, have speculated eagerly about this unknown life, the entrance into which establishes them as * big ' boys and girls. Many of them have perhaps gathered impressions of it from older brothers and sisters; they may have seen them ' playing school, and even. in a bewildered way, have been drawn into their games. It is for children who are still at this stage, not quite old enough yet to go to school, but beginning to look forward to it with interest, that today's story by W. Robson , about Anne who plays at school with her dolls, may have a special appeal. Daphne Oxenford will be the storyteller.
The remaining tales for the week will, we know, be welcomed by innumerable small listeners, for the four exploits of Jacko the monkey, written by Jean Sutcliffe , never fail to bring demands for more. These stories will be told by Julia Lang , and our programmes for the coming two weeks will be introduced by I.orna Pegram. 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.

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.
