A programme for children at home.
Presenters this week, Marla Landi, Brian Cant
In the story chair, Richard Baker

This week Richard Baker is the story-teller today and on Wednesday and Friday-not quite the same serious man who usually reads the news, but a more informal Richard Baker telling some stories which he has already tried out with his own children who watch Play School at home.
When Marla's car breaks down on Tuesday, Brian dresses up as a garage mechanic and tries to help her, and on the same day there is a picture story about Little Pete and a car.
Today's story is called 'The Three Lazy Sons'
(to 11.25)
