Have a listen to this episode from 4:00 minutes in

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b09w05zf

Is it the right choice, for the first book to read?

Don't know, is it Oxford Poetry 1915?

Yes, that's the right place to start. Definitely.

Songs for the Philologists, obviously. May require some reference materials for normal people to get the best from it....

The Professor is back on The Archers, from about 2:50 in, a lot of mentions in this episode, it seems this was not the best book to recommend, who would have guessed

Thanks for sharing! I've never heard The Archers before, but have found these snippets entertaining.

I didn't listen (The Archers is one of the few things I can't listen to on Radio Four), was it The Silmarillion?

Yes, about half the 15 minute episode is about Tolkien, The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, but mainly The Silmarillion.
