GUEST,Richard Which BBC Schools Broadcast around 1966 (20) RE: Which BBC Schools Broadcast around 1966 27 Feb 16

Thank you everyone for the replies so far.

In the third song listed, I'd put asterisks because I'd only half-remembered the word as "mortals" but knew that couldn't be correct. As the word is "Lortls" (an anagram of "trolls") I wasn't too far off!

I seem to recall I was in class 4 (of Dundonald Primary school), or the school year Autumn '65 to Summer '66, when we were singing along to these BBC radio schools programmes, which is consistent with the posts on the "alfaguru" link given above. One of these postings said that the song was broadcast in the "Time and Tune" series. The "broadcastsforschools" site says that this series was for 7-9 year olds and I was in this age group at the time (born March '58) so this seems likely.

All I'd like to know now is whether the pamphlet containing these 3 songs is Autumn '65, Spring '66 or Summer '66.

I'm assuming that all 3 songs were in the same pamphlet!
