The Lord of the Rings: 5: The Mirror of Galadriel


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
by J.R.R Tolkien, adapted in 13 episodes by Brian Sibley
starring Ian Holm as Frodo
Michael Hordern as Gandalf
Robert Stephens as Aragorn
and Peter Woodthorpe as Gollum

With a terrible cry the Balrog fell forward. But even as it fell it swung its whip, and the thongs lashed and curled about the wizard's knees dragging him to the brink. Gandalf staggered and fell, grasped vainly at the stone, and slid into the abyss. 'Fly, you fools!' he cried, and was gone.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
