A Hidden Treasure play, first broadcast in 1971. An innovative stereo version of The Tragedy of Macbeth, starring Joss Ackland, Googie Withers and Robert Hardy.
For many years this innovative production of The Tragedy of Macbeth was thought lost since its original live broadcast on Radio 3 in July 1971. Now it has been painstakingly reassembled by The British Library, The Radio Circle and Essential Radio. It stars Joss Ackland as Macbeth, Googie Withers as Lady Macbeth and Robert Hardy as Macduff, and has a full orchestral score by Stephen Dodgson, conducted by Rae Jenkins. The production was produced and directed by the celebrated and Prix Italia winning Raymond Raikes, and contains an extra scene, as Shakespeare and radio history scholar Dr Andrea Smith explains in her introduction.
With thanks to Dr Andrea Smith of the University of Suffolk, Keith Wickham and Dr Steve Arnold of The Radio Circle, Vedita Ramdoss, Stephen Cleary, Jonathan Summers and Karl Jenkins of the British Library, and Matthew Dodd of BBC Radio 3.
