In which the bear goes visiting and gets into a tight place.

Alan Bennett begins reading the first of five parts of AA Milne's tale of the much-loved bear.

Winnie-the-Pooh has given delight to generations of children and adults. The book was first published on 14th October 1926, though the bear 'of very little brain' had previously featured in a poem and a tale in a newspaper. His success has long continued through theatre, TV and film.

The honey-loving hero is styled on the teddy bear of the author's son and his co-stars, like Piglet, Eeyore and Tigger, are based on the rest of Christopher Robin Milne's own soft toys.

Adapted and produced by Colin Smith

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 1984.
