: Readings from Classical Literature-IX

The Story of Orestes. I-The Trilogy of Æsehylus : The Murder of Agamemnon.
Read by RONALD WATKINS
Orestes was the son of Agamemnon, who led the Greeks against Troy, and his story begins with the homecoming of his victorious father. In subject, then, it follows immediately after the Homeric Iliad, from which the first readings of this series were chosen. But it was not until some hundreds of years after Homer's supposed date that the first of the three great Greek tragedians wrote the trilogy, or group of three plays, which has made the name of Orestes familiar to all readers of the classics. The Oresteia of Æschylus was first performed at Athens in 458 B.C. Today you are to hear some passages from the first of the three plays, which deals with the murder of Agamemnon by his wife, Clytaemnostra.

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.

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.
