* The House at Pooh Corner' by A. A. Milne

—' Tigger is Unbounced'
At the piano, Gwenn Knight
Production by Josephine Plummet
One day Rabbit and Piglet and Pooh were sitting outside Pooh's front door listening to Rabbit. ' What it comes to is this,' said Rabbit. ' Tigger's getting so bouncy nowadays that it's time we taught him a lesson. Now I've got an idea. We take Tigger for a long explore, somewhere where he's never been, and we lose him there, and next morning we find him again, and-mark my words-he'll be a different Tigger altogether ! '

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.
