: LISTEN WITH MOTHER

A programme for children under five
Nursery rhymes stories, and music
There is a certain small boy for whom all bus drivers are 'Charlie,' and a little girl who every day on her way to school 'catches Charlie's Big Red Bus at the bottom of the lane.'
Through such instances as these we are constantly made aware of how our storie. become related to rhe daily experiences of our young listeners-how everyday living is constantly being looked at through rhe stories, and the stories held up against the mirror of life. ' Dear lady on the wireless,' wrote a mother at the dictation of her four-and-a-half-year-old son, * I liked the story of the Big Red Bus. My grandad has a lot of buses-blue-not red. I like double deckers best because I sit upstairs at t.he back. I have seen them washing the buses. They stand on a ladder and have a big brush and some water just like in the story.' Julia Lang re-tells this story -by Jean Sutcliffe today and tomorrow. On Wednesday comes Dorothy Smith with ' The Old Haycart,' by Mary Cockett , followed on Thursday and Friday by Daphne Oxenford with ' The Family Wanted a Holiday, 'by Elizabeth Coleman.

: Mrs. Dale's Diary

Mrs. Dale, the doctor's wife, records the daily happenings in the life of her family
Script by Basil Dawson

Dr. Laurie organised a meeting in protest against the decision to turn Parkwood Hill Hospital into a Children's Hospital, but he did not get the support he had counted on and he told Dr. Dale that he might look for another practice outside Parkwood Hill. A girl on the next counter to Mollie, at Berridges, lost her handbag. Mollie thought she would be suspected and went to see the Personnel Manager and asked for her locker to be searched. However, before that happened a customer returned the bag, which she had picked up by mistake. Mollie felt reluctant to continue at Berridges but Bob advised her to stay. Sally considered running the shop in partnership with Peter Kingston, and refused an offer from Maud French who immediately reported rhe proposed partnership to Richard Fulton.

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.
