: LISTEN WITH MOTHER

for children under five
' Goodbye now, until tomorrow-goodbye! ' says Catherine Edwards or Lorna Pegram as the music of Gabriel Faure 's ' Berceuse ' creeps gently in to round off our programme. This daily farewell, we have discovered, must never be omitted. tike ' Are you sitting comfortably? ' it signifies for our small listeners the rapport between them and the speaker which they unquestioningly assume. The importance to our under fives of this reciprocal relationship was stressed in an unexpected way by the mother of a small boy who wrote: ' When his lady says " goodbye " he always says " goodbye "-but waits a bit and says " why doesn't she answer me; why doesn't she say 'goodbye'? " I've tried to explain that she has already said
" goodbye, ' but it never pleases; always It is "I wish she'd say goodbye ' again When / say it to her " ' How many vajediotions, we wonder, would be needed to satisfy this small listener?
Each of our programmes this week will include a story from the series by Molly Sole about the adventures of the little boy Sam and his four-footed companion Little Wu. The storyteller will be Julia Lang and Catiherine Edwards will again pronounce the final goodbyes.'

: MRS. DALE'S DIARY

Mrs. Dale, the doctor's wife, records the daily happenings in the life of her family
Script by Jonquil Antony
(BBC recording)
To be repeated tomorrow at 11.0 a.m.
Last Sunday Sally entertained Mrs. Dale and Mrs. Ahmed at Gimlet Green for the day. Meanwhile Dr. Dale told Mollie at a vacancy in the Flower Department at Berrodges; but Mollie wasn't to keen to apply for the post until Bob convinced her it would be for her own good to take the job. Mr. Fulton gave Gwen an enormous teddy bear for Billy, to thank her for her help with his book, which he had now finished. However, when David read the proofs he realised that several passages were libellous and would have to be re-written. At home Gwen and David were puzzled to see what appeared to be Angclinr in Mrs. Sandman's paddock. However, it turned out that Mrs. Sandil had also acquired a goat.

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.
