The Ordinary Devoted Mother and her Children
2—Saying 'No' isn't just saying ' No '
Several mothers of babies and toddlers recorded, unrehearsed, conversations among themselves about problems of upbringing. They suggested the BBC might supply on the air some background of theory to help in dealing with typical situations. For example, when and how often do you say ' No' to your child? Are your children ever jealous of each other? Do you find anything irksome about your work in the home?
In this programme a paediatrician who is also a children's psychiatrist talks about some of the things he found himself thinking while listening last week to the conversation on Saying No.' Parts of that conversation are repeated.

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.
