A programme for children under five
'Nursery rhymes, stories, and music
'About a year ago,' wrote the mother of a three-and-a-half-ycar-old boy, ' you broadcast a story about " Marmaduke," a red lorry, and his driver, Joe. Doneld not only loved this story—he lives rt almost every day. His toy motor-car or hits tricycle becomes Marmaduke and be assumes the role of Joe for perhaps two hours. He insists on being addressed as Joe, and beiiavee to rhe best of his knowledge as a lorry driver would behave. He would be so grateful if you could tell the story again.'
We often hear of children playing thus, bu.t rarely comes such dear evidence of the play continuing so long. WiU a second broadcast (on Thursday) of Elizabeth Chapman 's'Marmaduke goes across the hills' continue to inspire our small listener's fantasy or will it dtsappomt and bring his play to an end?
Daphne Oxenford tells this tale, and Friday's too— ' Charlie the Cuckoo,' by Monica Jarrett. Today and Wednesday bring Dorothy Smith with ' Patr.ck's Pansy,'by Joan E Cass , and Hilda. I. Rostron's ' The Whistling Wind.On Tuesday comes Julia Lang with Leah Maizel 's 'Daisyof Beech Farm.' Lorna Pegram introduces the w?ek's stones.
