: LISTEN WITH MOTHER

A programme for children under five
Nursery rhymes, stories, and music
Charles, the hero of Ruth Ainsworth's stories, is a small boy, and the things he does are the things that any small boy enjoys or would enjoy—making boats, for instance, out of corks at the seaside, as happens in Friday's tale this week, or playing gaoies about grown-up life, as in Wednesday's story, ' Charles Goes to the Office.'
Charles' mosher understands his needs.
She might well complain about ' bulging' pockets; instead she makes a ' useful bag ’ for his treasures ;with unexpectedly satisfactory results in today's story, ' Charles and the String Plait ') and goes to considerable trouble over a hobby-horse in tomorrow's, ‛Charles and Dapple.’ She has, moreover, a wise way with Charles when he is ' difficult,' as indeed he sometimes is, and as will be found in Thursday's tale, ‛ Charles is Cross.’ Daphne Oxenford is the s'oryteller who reintroduces Charles to his young admirers this week.

: MRS. DALE'S DIARY

Mrs. Dale, the doctor's wife, records the daily happenings in the life of her family
Script by Basil Dawson
Jenny decided to find some evening work to help pay her expenses and arrived in London unexpectedly. She stayed the weekend at Virginia Lodge and later told Bob that she had found work as a baby-sitter. Bruce Laurie told Dr. Dale he had found a practice in the country and that he was going to let his house to Dr. Gardiner, who would sub-let one floor of the house. Gwen was determined to ask him for the ground floor flat since she continued to find life difficult in an upstairs flat with Billy now crawling around, and Edward Fielding complaining of the noise he made. Sally could not decide on a name for her shop. Mrs. Morgan noticed Tiggy scuffing along the road, untidy and obviously very unhappy.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
