The Three Princesses
Granny MUTCH taks a keekie intil her kistie, an' finds a real couthy story aboot quines an' Queens an' Princesses an' Peeries an' Giants an' a' thing
Granny Mutch 's kist is like the well that never runs dry. One supposes, therefore, that its dimensions must be quite staggering. At least, only a week ago the Aberdeen Animals found it so. The lid had been left open. Brer Rabbit jumped as high as he could to get in, but the wall was too lofty for him. He recollected, however, that much can be done by forming a pyramid, and invited Squirrel to stand on his back, curling her twil up the side of the box. Miss Mouse, being the lightest, seftn ascended this animal ladder and perched on the edge.
By a little. manipulation she was able to hitch Squirrel's tail over the side like a hook. Rabbit next swarmed up and helped Miss Mouse to pull Squirrel into the box. The Animals thought they would do some reading for themselves. After reading as long as their eyes could see, they fell asleep in a veritable storyland and might have been there long enough if granny had not recollected that she must get ready for her next broadcast.

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.
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.
