'HAMLET '

or ' The Consequences of Filial Piety
A moral legend by Jules Laforgue
Translated and adapted for radio by Henry Reed
Produced by Douglas Cleverdon
' It faut agir ...'
Henry Reed writes: 'In the morainés légendaires of Jules Laforgue certain ancient histories are pursued to conclusions not quite contemplated in earlier treatments. In Hamlet, which is probably the best knowh of them, the young artist-hero does not emerge wholly unscathed by Laforgue's affectionate satire. This may offend strict Hamlet-olatry a little; but English audiences have always liked their Hamlets doctored, improved, disguised, embellished, toned up, toned down, and what not; and it seems a pity to deny them Laforgue's version, which at least has the virtues of logic, humour, and unabashed subjectivity.'

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.
