The book by J. R. R. Tolkien abridged by Barbara Henderson read in thirteen instalments by David Davis
1: An Unexpected Party
What is a hobbit? I suppose hobbits need some description nowadays, since they have become rare and shy of the Big People, as they call us. They are small people, very much larger than lilliputians, but smaller than dwarfs -and they have no beVds. They are inclined to be fat in the stomach; they dress in bright colours-chiefly green and yellow; wear no shoes, because their feet grow natural leathery soles and thick brown hair like the stuff on their heads-which is curly; have long clever brown fingers, good-natured faces, and deep fruity laughs.

Short story by PENELOPE MORTIMER
Read by Charlotte Mitchell
Acknowledged as an outstanding describer of domesticity, Mrs. Mortimer writes about the Brownings, Madge and William and their three daughters, two of them Madge's by a former marriage.
From the moment the parents wake in the morning, through a hilariously disastrous lunch, until night when the children are put to bed, we are given a complete picture of a household on a day of crisis.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
