: LISTEN WITH MOTHER

A programme for children under five
Nursery rhymes, stories, and music
' Little and good,' says the adage — and tha-t, no doubt, accounts at least in part for the popularity of Tommy the Tugboat among our under fives. Tommy is very small, and by no means handsome, but out he goes fearlessly every day about his business on the vast * rumbling, tumbling ' ocean, and he it is who rescues the beautiful but haughty Queen of the Sea, one of the greatest ships in the world, when she is ignominiously stuck on a sandbank. Tommy, in fact, has a strange affinity with our under fives. Like him they are small and seemingly unimportant creatures in a big world, and :t does them good to hear of him tackling difficulties with confidence and success. Even the Queen of the Sea apologises for being rude!
Daphne Oxenford brings back, today and -tomorrow, Dora Tharoher 's two stories about Tommy, together with a third, a new one, on Wednesday, while on Thursday and Friday comes Dorothy Smith with ' Mollie under the Apple Tree,' by Ruth Ainsworth. and ' The Little While Piano ' by Mary Harbett. Lorna Pegram returns today to introduce the programme6 for the next two weeks.

Script by Basil Dawson

While Isabel Fielding was at Virginia Lodge she met the carrier who had come to collect Angeline and by mistake directed him to pick up Mrs. Sandiman's goat. Mrs. Sandiman was very annoyed but Gwen and David arrived and explained the mistake. Saturday was Dr. and Mrs. Dale's wedding anniversary and the rest of the family congratulated them. Bob and Joe Bates spent the week-end at Virginia Lodge and watched cricket at the Oval. Mollie wanted to live at Marble Heath, near Geoff, but Mrs. Dale advised her against it.

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.
