A programme for children at home
Presenters this week, Carol Chell, Lionel Morton
In the story chair, James Ottaway who tells his own story "Up the Drainpipe"

Dragonflies, moths and bees,
Spiders falling from the trees,
Butterflies sway in the mild gentle breeze,
Caterpillars that squirm
And many worms
In an English country garden.
You can see some of these insects through the windows, and on Pets Day caterpillars come to Play School. Gardeners are always busy in the springtime and tomorrow Carol and Lionel mow the grass and plant some seeds.

A series which explores living memory

Some of the artists, cameramen, and others who made or showed or appeared in British films fifty, sixty, seventy years ago-long before the talkies-recall' their work as we see it.
'Off I'd go on my bicycle and get some old skirts or something, and then we'd do a film, and it was all over by lunchtime... It was an awful business really. But still we enjoyed it. We got to where films are now, when you think of it. We're pioneers aren't we-we people?' says May Clarke, who is seen in the programme in the part of a nursemaid in Cecil Hepworth's 1905 classic Rescued by Rover.
Also taking part: Arthur Kingston, Jimmy Gemmell, Ken Gordon, Bill Arch, Bertram Brooks-Carrington, Bert Chambers, Herbert Fullilove, Dorothy Bellew, Tom Williamson (also appearing in Our New Errand Boy-1902) and Chrissie White (also appearing in the 1911 Tilly and the Fire Engine)
