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.
