: 'Tod the Tailor'

An Heroic Play for all ages by W. GRIFFIN
With Music by CHARLES F. WATERS
Production by CYRIL WOOD
The play begins in the workroom of Thomas Tod , a tailor, in which are heard:
Thomas Tod , himself; Gertrude, his wife; A Burgomaster
Hob, Nob, Clem, Diccon, Hercules, and Jonas (Tailors)
From Tod's house a journey is made to the Last of the Old Kingdoms, where, in the Throne Room of the Palace, are heard:
King Hobo the Tenth ; Eunice, the Queen-Consort; Rosamund, the Princess ; Lord Great Panjandrum (The Government); Sullivan P.C. (The Police Force) ; General Reserve (The
Army); Thomas Tod ; A Peasant
Then to a Lonely Place, where
Thomas Tod meets ;
Sullivan P.C. ; A Charcoal Burner ; and The Dragon
Once more to the King's Palace and finally
Back again to the Workroom of Thomas Tod
This might be called a Christmas Children's Play for Grown-Ups, but then again it might equally well be called a Christmas Grown-Up Play for Children. Not that the play has anything to do with Christmas-it might have happened at any time. The truth is, perhaps, that Christmas is the one time of the year when grown-ups allow themselves the indulgence of reverting to childhood, and children are allowed for once to be any age they please. It would seem, at any rate, that some such spirit animated the author when he wrote Tod the Tailor, seeing that he successfully combines the humours of the world of once-upon-a-time with the humour of today. In a word-a real family play.

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.
