A programme for children under five
Nursery rhymes, stories, and music
"I don't like Dickory Dock song," said a four-year-old boy, "but I like This is the way the ladies ride." Our under-fives are quite clear about their likes and dislikes where their programme is concerned.
They listen intelligently, too, and ponder what they hear. "He sings it first," said a three-and-a-half-year-old girl, when George Dixon sang Hickory Dickory Dock "alone and then with Eileen Browne." He sings it first to show her how, and then he sings it with her to help her."
We hope that the small boy quoted above will tolerate this particular rhyme on Friday this week, since be will hear "This is the way the ladies ride" today.
Catherine Edwards is with us again this week and next, and will introduce these and all the other rhymes, and the story-tellers, too â€” Julia Lang for the first three days to tell stories of Galloper the Horse and Bouncer the Dog, by Margaret Jacobson; Daphne Oxenford on Thursday with that favourite story about a Teddy Bear by Margaret Gore; and Dorothy Smith on Friday with "Ian and the Watch," by Esther Provia.

Mrs. Dale, the doctor's wife, records the daily happenings In the life of her family
Script by Joan Carr-Jonca
Last week Mrs. Dale collected the Doctor's suit from the cleaner, who had discovered the missing part of the Dalt Grandfather clock in the turn-up of the trousers! Mrs. Dale, accompanied by Miss Sirrvmonds, went to an auction sale but she was outbid by Mrs. Moumford and Mrs. Sandiman on every purchase she tried to make. She did, however, manage to get a miniature at a wedding present for Miss Pink. Gwen persuaded Richard Fulton to write the Coronation Pageant for Parkwood Hill. Isabel Fielding had a sharp attack of influenza and Dr. Dale ordered her to stay in bed for a few days. Trudi volunteered to look after her, as the maid had left that morning. Miss Pink told Sally that the Reverend Francis Austen was not in love but quite fond of her, and needed a wife to help him with his pastoral work.

A series of programmes for parents about some of the different phases through which a child's mind passes as it grows up
6-Spreading Wings by Dr. Cecily de Monchaux
As the teenager develops a necessary independence and perhaps enters on his first job, the feelings of the parent become somewhat mixed. His help is still needed but it sometimes becomes a little difficult to decide how it can best be given. Probably the greatest contributon he can make at this time is to understand the changes of attitude that take place both in his children and himself.
This programme is illustrated by conversatins between actual teenagers and by dramatic interludes acted by: Vivienne Chatterton. Stephen Jack
