Eugenie Summerfield writes: I have written a number of "children's classics", as follows:
In December 1980 my Wriggly Worm and the Beanstalk was specially commissioned for the "Listen with Mother" programme, and was described on "Pick of the Week" as one of the most unusual pantomimes broadcast. "Wriggly Worm" et al were much loved characters in 42 stories, written for radio, and enjoyed a cult following over some 17 years, until the axing of all children's programmes in the late 1980s.
I wrote many other stories for young children (and the young in heart!) for programmes such as "Listen with Mother", "Listening Corner", "Let's Join In" and ITV's "My World". I was also a scripwriter for "Listen with Mother" in the 1980s.
My main producer was Dave Bell when the "Listen with Mother" programme enjoyed a new and lively approach.
I would welcome an increase in radio programming for young children,
which at the moment (2003) is in very short supply.
