Dramatic Reading-3
Julius Cœsar—2, by William Shakespeare
It may be, as a correspondent pointed out in last week's Radio TIMES, that this branch of the broadcasts to schools has not hitherto received the publicity it deserves. But publicity or no, nil those in the schoolroom or out of it, who heard the first dramatic reading from Shakespeare's Julius Cœsar exactly four weeks ago, will be eagerly awaiting this sequel.
It is, of course, impossible even in two half-hour broadcasts to give the whole of Shakespeare's great dramatic tragedy, but the scenes that are broadcast (by accomplished and experienced radio actors) are skilfully linked by a brief explanatory synopsis that makes the story complete.
The first Julius Cœsar broadcast left off at the murder of Julius Caesar and the promise made by Brutus to Mark Antony , the friend of Cæsar. that he should be allowed to speak to the people at Caesar's funeral. This afternoon we shall hear how that promise was fulfilled and how Antony turned the tables. Antony's speech to the crowd in the Forum, which opens with the familiar words, Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears ' is one of the most famous, as it is one of the most powerful and beautiful speeches ever written by Shakespeare.

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.
