A programme for children under five
Nursery rhymes, stories, and music
'Ding-a-dong, Bing-balong,' sing our small Listeners to the chiming tune which' announces their programme. These sounds, we are told, cause even incredibly small babies to smile or wave their hands, and draw their older brothers and sisters in from far away. Most children, it seems however, are already awaiting them, in position,' long before the time-like the girl who, sitting patiently through the preceding concert, sighed at last, When is this music going to stop? I can't wait all the time! '
Occasionally impatience expresses itseif in action. The parents of a small boy wondered why the clock gained fifteen minutes every day, until his mother spotted him putting the big hand on from half-past one to a quarter to two.'
The stories which the chimes will herald this week are two by Joan E. Cass about Wilfred and his dog Ginger, to be told today and tomorrow by Julilee ' Lang; ' Charlie the Cuckoo,' by Monica Jarrett and The Dirty Doll's House,' by Ruth Ainswonth , which ' Daphne Oxenford Lady ' relates on Wednesday and Friday; and ' The Bus Ride,' by Christine Chaundler , on Thursday, with storyteller Dorry Miff. ' All will be introduced by ' Laura Pegroom. ' Elizabeth A. Taylor

Mrs. Dale, the doctor's wife, records the daily happenings in the life of her family
Script by Lesley Wilson
As Dr. and Mrs. Dale were about to leave Sanbourne, Mrs. Freeman rang to say
Tiggy was missing. Isabel decided to return with them immediately. Shortly after they arrived at Virginia Lodge Tiggy appeared. He had been at the railway station all day awaiting his father's return. Trudi received a Valentine, which openly annoyed Bob; but he was well pleased when he sold a flat and its contents for more than a thousand pounds. Tuesday was Sally's birthday and Richard Fulton took her out to celebrate. When they returned to Sally's flat they found Tony Coppard waiting for her in a drunken mood. Mrs. Freeman heard that Dr. Dale was going to visit his solicitor and also a specialist, which rather troubled her.
