with Alan Bennett
The House at Pooh Comer by A. A. MILNE
This week:
' Tigger Comes to Breakfast
Pictures by E. H. SHEPARD
Adapted for television and directed by PAUL CIANI
Producer, ANNA Home
If you happen to be walking around humming quietly, ' The more it snows,' the chances are that someone within earshot will add the ' tiddly pom' for you. For the benefit of those of you who wouldn'have added ' tiddly pom,' that is the first line of one of Pooh's Better Hums-such as his ' Hummed Hopefully To Others ... Pooh being Pooh Bear, hero (?) of A. A. Milne 's world-famous stories.
For the next few weeks
Alan Bennett will be telling some stories from The House at Pooh Corner. Alan is a somewhat late convert to Poohsticks and Henatumps—' I didn'read the books till I was fourteen.' He's been busily engaged finding suitable voices for all the characters-Pooh is north country and Owl Is donnish.

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.

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.
