: LISTEN WITH MOTHER

Nursery rhymes, stories, and music
'I notice,' writes a mother, about her small son, 'he does not want to "do" the more vigorous action songs, such as "This is the way the ladies ride"; he prefers to concentrate on the words and music.'
Our under-fives each have their individual habits of listening. Some, like this small boy, sit silently absorbed, others like to act or sing while the programme is going on. Among those who sing, some prescribe very rigid rules, like the boy whose mother writes: ' Only he was allowed to sing when George Dixon sang, and only his sister and I, when Eileen Browne did her bit. You try,' adds the writer, ' to work that one out in " Hush-a-bye Baby "I ' For those who wish to try, this experiment can be made on Thursday this week!
Two tales by Charles Bernard , about a tug-boat called the Clara Belle (told by Julia Lang ) followed by three adventures of Baby Bear, by M. E. Allan (storyteller Dorothy Smith ) make up the week's stories, and for the coming fortnight Lorna Pegram introduces the programmes.

: MRS. DALE'S DIARY

Mrs. Dale, the doctor's wife, records the daily happenings in the life of her family
Script by Basil Dawson
(Continued in next column)
The day after the Coronation was a quiet day for the Dales, marked only by the fact that Sally brought some plants to replace those Angeline had eaten from Monument's Coronation border. Saturday saw Parkwood Hill's Coronation Pageant, which wasa great success, and on Monday Monument came to tend his border. The ravages greatly upset him and he insisted that Angeline must got
Mrs. Dale had a letter from Geoffrey asking her to meet him in town. He explained that all was well between Mollie and himself, but that he had to return to his Unit. It was finally agreed that Mrs. Dale would meet them at King's Cross, and when Geoffrey had gone she would take Mollie to report to the Probation Officer. Geoffrey left but Mollie refused to co-operate.

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.
