A progress report on tonight's cases. <S)

: Imagine...: Being Hamlet

1/4 As the all-embracing arts strand returns for its eighth series, Alan Yentob follows Welsh actor Wayne Cater and three other Hamlet hopefuls as they prepare for a Shakespeare role that has become a rite of passage for all who have taken it on. With advice and support from ex-Hamlets Ralph Fiennes, Derek Jacobi, David Warner, Jonathan Pryce and Simon Russell Beale.
"The Hobart Shakespeareans" premieres tomorrow on BBC4 at 9pm

ARTS Imagine... 10.45pm BBC1
To Choice, or not to Choice. That is the question. But despite a lack of preview tapes, I decided it was nobler in the mind to go ahead and recommend this latest in a new series based on past form, rather than suffer the slings and arrows of outraged arts lovers.
So, Imagine... is back, fronted as always by Alan Yentob, who tonight presents a look at the role of Hamlet. Why is playing Shakespeare's troubled young prince such a big deal in the theatrical world? Is there some kind of rite of passage involved in moping around Elsinore, visualising your dead dad as a ghost and making plans to kill your uncle?
Contributors include former Hamlets Derek Jacobi, Ralph Fiennes, Jonathan Pryce, David Warner and Simon Russell Beale. The programme also follows four actors already playing Hamlet from rehearsals through to final performance, including young Ed Stoppard on stage in London. (Alison Graham)

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.
