: The Tragedy of Macbeth

by WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
The first stereo production of this play with Joss Ackland as Macbeth Googie Withers as Lady Macbeth Robert Hardy as Macduff Music by STEPHEN DODGSON conducted by RAE JENKINS
Written in 1606. and first printed in the Folio of 1623, it is one of the shortest of Shakespeare's plays. This enables us to broadcast a nearly complete text. omitting only the two Hecat scenes (probably written by Middleton). and including what may well be the missing scene: it occurs in a 1664 Restoration adaptation of Macbeth by Shakespeare's ' god-son ' Sir William Davenant who based it on a playhouse prompt-copy different from that reproduced in the Folio of 1623. Arranged for stereo and produced by RAYMOND RAIKES
There will be a short interval after Act 3. Scene 4, at 8.15* (Joss Ackland is in ' Captain Brassbound's Conversion' at the CambridgeTheatre, London) followed by an interlude

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.
