: LISTEN WITH MOTHER

for children under five
A correspondent, playing a nursery rhyme tune for some -five-year-old listeners, was rewarded with the comment, ' Yes, it's the same tune but you can't play all the twiddly bits like rhe lady does! '
It is indeed interesting to note how appreciatively aware of ' the lady's ' nursery rhyme settings our young audience can be-how, for instance, they relish the chords which indicate ' mother ' slapping Jill, or the piano sequence representing the bells in Mary, Mary.' Occasionally the appreciation is genuinely subtle, like that ot the boy who, noticing how the tune and the accompaniment of 'Ride a Cock Horse ' played against one another, remarked, ' The man is balancing this music.'
This week, as usual, the ' twiddly bit! ' will be heard in some of the familiar rhymes and Catherine Edwards will introduce both them and the storyteHers. Today, tomorrow and on Thursday comes Julia I.ang with ' Their First Pet,' by Nora Cuthbert , ' Janet and the Baby Fairy,' by Daphne Harrison , and ' The Lorry,' by Ruth Simonis , while Wednesday and Friday bring Daphne Oxenford , with Eileen Hocking 's ' Dressing Up ' and Margaret West 's ' The Little Green Car.'
On Friday piease note, our programme begins at 1.25. Elizabeth A. Taylor

: Mrs. Dale's Diary

Mrs. Dale, the doctor's wife, records the daily happenings in the life of her family.
Mrs. Dale and Mrs. Ahmed arranged to spend a week sightseeing in London. Meanwhile Mollie realised she must find a job, and the Doctor agreed to ask the Personnel Manager at Berridge's whether she could be employed in the Flower Department there. Sally persuaded Peter Kingston to take Angeline to Gimlet Green in the back of his car; Mollie was the only person who could handle the goat, and so she, David, and Peter all spent the week-end at Sally's cottage. The local Council decided to recognise Mrs. Freeman's work for the Pageant by passing a vote of thanks to her at the next Council Meeting.

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.
