A programme for children under five
I'm Edward John , I'm not very long; I'll be big soon, Good afternoon!
What inspired our four-year-old poet? It was the song of Mitten the Kitten. Mitten and the little verse he sings about his name. seem without doubt to have endeared themselves to our small listeners. ' 'Please will you tell her again the stories about Mitten the Kitten, and sing her the little song which accompanied all the ta'es?' ' Could we have " Mitten the Kitten again, with its little signature tune? The whole family has been humming, singing, and whistling it ever since Mitten was first broadcast several weeks ago.' 'She still remembers the Mitten the Kitten stories and sings his little song.' All such requests will now be granted, for these established favourites by Christine Rees will be heard again this week. This time, however, the voice that reads them will be a new one, that of Dorothy Smith , who becomes our fourth story-teller today and begins her first month with our programme. Her picture appears on Wednesday.

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.
