Professor A.Y. Campbell: Greek Plays for Modern Listeners: II: Æschylus and his 'Oresteia.'


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
In his first talk Professor Campbell explained the general characteristics of Greek tragedy and those points of contrast with modem plays that must be realized if we are to understand the great works of the Greek dramatists as they are meant to be understood. In the next four talks he goes on to deal with the greatest playwrights whose works we know - Æschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, and Aristophanes—, starting today with Æschylus, the creator of Clytemnestra and Orestes, the Lady Macbeth and the Hamlet of the Greek world.

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.
