"Recently",Â’ wrote a mother, "this programme has been causing quite a bother in our household. Each day my four-and-a-half-year-old daughter listens eagerly, and each day she comes charging into the kitchen complaining that the story is too short and it isn't fair."Â’
This seems, indeed, to be a not uncommon complaint among our small listeners as they approach the age of five, and not all of them accept the situation as philosophically as the girl who explained that "when there was only a short story it was because the teller was going out to tea and was therefore in a hurry!"
We hope our greybeards will forgive, for the sake of the younger ones, the shortness of Mary Soulby's stories, "Tom's Red Jersey" and "Tom's Grown-up Trousers" (to be told today and tomorrow by Julia Lang). They will be coupled with Jean Sutcliffe's nonsense rhyme "A Pig with a Wig", and will be followed for the rest of the week by longer talesÂ— on Wednesday and Thursday, Mary Cockett's "Blackie the Coal Engine" (storyteller Dorothy Smith), and, on Friday, Diana Ross's "One Little, Two Little", told by Julia Lang.

Mrs. Dale, the doctor's wife, records the daily happenings in the life of her family
Script by Lesley Wilson
Last week Sally drove Mrs. Dale and Elaine Aliardyce to her brother's wedding at Gimlet Green. MiM Pink was present and asked Mrs. Dale if the Doctor would give her away at her own wedding. When Mrs. Dale told the Doctor he was not very enthusiastic but finally agreed to do so Bob received a cheque from Malcolm Reeves for selling a flat, and askec Trudi to celebrate wi.rh him. She would not do so, however; so, on Sally's suggestion, he took Blaine. Mr. FuLton finished the Coronation Pageant for Parkwood Hill and insisted that Jenny should play the young Queen Viotoria. Mrs. Freeman was still concerning herselJf about rhe Doctor's health, and much to his annoyance kept up a sustained ‛ fuss.'
