: LISTEN WITH MOTHER

for children under five
Nursery rhymes, stories, and music
Long ago, when a new storyteller was first heard in our programme, a small boy announced his approval thus: ‛ She’s all njrht, she's got a lovely voice.' And she was accepted into the select coterie without demur
Hints such as this of a young child's aesthetic response to the voices he hears have more than once crept into our correspondence, as have also reflections of the sense of the personality which, for him, they convey
This week the voices of aU three story-tellers can be heard-today and on Wednesday, Daphne Oxenford's (in ‛ Peterkin’s Hat,' by Hilda James, and ‛ Spring Cleaning,' by Helen Wareing), tomorrow and on Thursday Dorothy Smith's (in ‛Candy the Lazy Kangaroo,' by Janet Lamb. and ' The Pet Lamb,' by Jane Peock), and on Good Friday, Julia Lang's (in ' Woppy's Easter Egg,' by K. G. White). The voice which introduces the programmes is that of Lorna Pegrain, and, singing with Eileen Browne, can be heard, as usual, what a certain little girl described as ' the chocolate voice ' of George Dixon Elizabeth A. Taylor

Script by Joan Carr-Jones
Last week Bob received a summons from the Counry Court Bailiff for over-charging on the furmture in Cooper's flat. He toot it immediately to Bill Francis. who promised 10 help him. Dr. Dale told Alec about Bob's troubles. Alec suggested that when everything was cleared up Bob should make a fresh start in Canada, but Mrs. Date was not in favour of this. Bob told Trudi about the summons but she was not very concerned, and this proved to him that she wasn't ion love with him. Mrs. Mountford showed MN. Freeman a roll of ruby velvet. Mrs. Freeman decided to charm Mrs Mountford into letnng her have the velvet for the paeeanr costumes.

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.

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.
