: LISTEN WITH MOTHER

A programme for children under five
'A long time ago,' wrote the mother of a four-and-a-half-year-old girl, ' you told a story about three bunnies going for a walk and getting very hungry but being pre- vented from eating the farmer's lettuce and carrots by a big black dog and a brown one, but eventually eating their fill from a field of dandelions. She still waits hopefully to hear it again. And the reason? 'So that she can say " So am I," with the bunnies! '
We hear very often how ardently our under-fives enter into ' their ' programme, and it is such spontaneous participation as this, unprompted and undirected, which we feel has a very special value. ' The
Three Bunnies,' by June Colbourne, will be broadcast again on Wednesday, told by Daphne Oxenford. Today and tomorrow our storyteller is Julia Lang , with ' The Little Engine was Tired, by Eileen Mathias and ' The Man with a Red Wig,' by Herbert McKay ; while Thursday and Friday bring Dorothy- Smith with 'Timothy's Bed,' by Christine Chaundler , and ' The Fairy in the Cherry Tree,' by M. G. Tapley. Catherine Edwards returns today to introduce our programmes for the coming two weeks. Elizabeth A. Taylor

: MRS. DALE'S DIARY

Script by Jonquil Antony
Mrs. Dale had a letter from Bob saying he had decided to make his career in Civil Aviation. When Mrs. Freeman learned that Mr. Fulton was also going to the Edinburgh Festival, she became annoyed and told Sally that she had decided . not to go. However, later that day she apologised to Sally and admitted how much she was looking forward to the visit. Isabel Fielding came to see Mrs. Dale unexpectedly one evening; she had had another quarrel with Edward, was very upset and said that her marriage had been unhappy for a long while. When she returned home she found a note from Edward saying he had gone to stay at his club.

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.
