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 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.
