: Listen with Mother

A programme for children under five
(BBC recording)
A mother recalled how deeply Diana Ross's story, 'William and the Lorry,' had impressed her small boy. 'Since hearing it,' she says, 'he has invariably picked himself up after a fall - "cos William did".' The behaviour of this little boy makes explicit, we think, something of the reason for the appeal of this tale for so many of our under fives, for, added to the seemingly unfailing attraction of all things mechanical for so many of our young listeners, is the further, crucial fact that every child who hears the tale can identify himself with William. Not only does he hear a story about a lorry-which is exciting in its own right - but he can see himself, in William, enjoying those experiences and relationships which he would so much like to have as part of his own life.
Our listeners can renew acquaintance with William today and tomorrow when Julia Lang tells them his story again. She will also be with them on Thursday with 'The Water Baby,' by Ruth Ainsworth. On Wednesday and on Friday comes Dorothy Smith with 'Tommy's Shadow,' by June Colbourne, and 'The Day there were no Prawns for Tea,' by Amy Smith.

: MRS. DALE'S DIARY

Script by Jonquil Antony
Dr. Dale had Bruce Laurie's petition against the Parkwood Hill Hospital being taken over for children defeated. Bruce was very annoyed and talked of going to a country practice. Dr. Dale wondered whether he ought to leave instead, which upset Mrs. Dale, but she determined not to let the Doctor know this. Sallv tried to persuade Mr. Fulton to agree to the amendments needed to his book, but he remained obstinate; and David, worried about the misunderstanding, stayed out very late so as not to burden Gwen with his troubles; but she thought he must have met with an accident. Bob wrote to tell his parents that he had decided what he wanted to work at, but he was not going to tell anyone of his plans until he knew definitely that he had the right qualifications.

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.
