: The Sunday Play: Inugami: the Dog-God

In a remote village in Japan, a woman is attacked by a dog. Nine months later, she gives birth to a son, Tsukio, and the village treats him with apprehension.
A powerful mythic drama, the play is an early work by one of the 20th-century's most important Japanese writers, Shuji Terayama.
This production reunites the team of composer Mia Soteriou and director Ned
Chaillet whose last Japanese drama for radio was "Yabuhara Kengyo: the Blind Master Minstrel" by Hisashi Inoue. The techniques they brought to that production - creating sound effects with the actors and making strong use of a chorus created from the acting company - are again used to great effect.
Music played by William Lyons (reed flute), Mia Soteriou (piano)

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.
