: ' The Art of Reading'

Mr. DESMOND MAcCARTHY : 'Drama, Modern :
Ibsen and After '
Tonight Mr. MacCarthy brings to a close his series on ' The Art of Reading,' in the course of which he has ranged over the whole field of English literature, bringing many famous books before a host of new readers. The modern revival of drama within the last fifty years has meant, on the dramatists' side, an influx of new ideas to the stage. Ibsen, Wilde, Pinero, Shaw, Henry Arthur Jones , Galsworthy, Maugham, Coward and Lonsdale have all excited attention for their work for the stage because it treated, seriously or satirically, of the life of our time. This fact has led to a great increase in the reading of plays. Mr. MacCarthy is a distinguished dramatic critic, and well qualified to consider modern drama from the reader's as well as the spectator's point of view. This final talk leads naturally into the series that begins next week on ' The Making of a Play,' in which Macbeth is considered from the point of view of producer, actor and designer.
Nothing could better emphasize the many-sided artistic activity and collaboration, which is the outstanding feature of the modern dramatic renaissance of which Mr. MacCarthy speaks.

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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
