Part 2

: Mary Morris, Peter Ustinov and Alec Guinness in ' ANTIGONE '

by Jean Anouilh
Adapted for radio by Merlin Thomas and Frank Hauser from the translation by Lewis Gelantiere
Produced by Frank Hauser
All sorts of very odd things have been said about Jean Anouilh's play Antigone, first played in Paris in 1944, but it it really a perfectly simple, straightforward tragedy..... He takes the Greek story of Antigone and tells it as a Greek story — the scene is still Thebes — but with deliberate anachronisms, so that the characters speak much as they would today. In much the same way Racine made his characters from antiquity use the French of the seventeenth century. M.T.

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.
