VACLAV HAVEL 'S comedy translated from the Czech by VERA BLACKWELL and adapted for radio by MARTIN ESSLIN with Donald Pleasence and Hugh Burden
Vaclav Havel , perhaps the best known contemporary Czech playwright, is under threat of prosecution in his own country. In the period of liberalisation which preceded the Russian occupation of Czechoslovakia Havel's writing played an important part.
The Memorandum - first broadcast by the BBC in 1966 on radio and later shown on BBCty -is a brilliant, and in the light of subsequent events, prophetic satire on the nature of political power in a totalitarian country.
Produced by MARTIN ESSLIN (Another play by Vaclav Havel , ' Guardian Angel ': Thurs, 9.0)

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.
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.
