A programme for children at home.
Presenters this week, Marian Diamond, John White
In the story chair, Gerald Young

Some people live in houses
In flats some others dwell,
Others live in boats and ships
And lighthouses as well
This week Play School discovers what it is like to live in homes as different as a caravan and a lighthouse.
Today's story is called: 'The Hedge-hog that Couldn't Curl Up'
(to 11.25)

by Robin Smyth
With Leslie Sands as Will Thompson, Reg Lye as Charlie Harper

Charlie Harper was always the one who had it his own way, who took what he wanted... but now he is a lonely old man and it is Will Thompson who has the upper hand.
"They're gonna remember me, Charlie... hundreds and thousands of people, some of them not even born yet..."
