: Scenes from Shakespeare: Richard III

Beatrix Lehmann as the Lady Anne, Ernest Milton as Richard, Duke of Gloucester in scenes from "Richard III".
Today for the first time viewers will see Ernest Milton, who is one of the best Shakespearean actors on the London stage. Radio listeners will remember his fine interpretation of Shylock in the radio version of "The Merchant of Venice" broadcast on January 31. It was his first introduction to Shakespeare that made him decide to become an actor. He was taken as a small boy to see "As You Like It" performed in the Greek theatre of the University of California, and from that moment his mind was made up.
Beatrix Lehmann, as well as being a leading actress, has a big reputation as a novelist.

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.
