A weekly review of the arts


Part 2


by W. B. YEATS
Calvary, a verse play written in 1920, appears never to have received a professional stage production in this country. This fact can only be accounted for by the treatment Yeats accorded its subject.
The Resurrection was not written until
1931. Although in prose, the treatment of its subject, in its irony and savage questioning, is similar to that of Calvary.

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.
