Tuesday's picture book is "Biquette the White Goat"; and on Thursday Colin Jeavons retells the adventure of Henry Hatter, the hat man. On Friday the toys make their New Year Resolutions.

This is Play School's Christmas week. The Picture Book on Monday comes from Norway and is called 'The Town that Forgot it was Christmas'. But Play School has not forgotten. During the rest of the week Ronald Eyre will be telling again the story of the First Christmas; and on Friday Julie Stevens and Eric Thompson light the last of the candles on the Christmas-is-coming ring. And they wish you a merry Christmas from everyone in Play School.

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.
