Abstract

Despite the inherent caution of the BBC and the radio drama department in the 1950s, the work of Samuel Beckett was eventually embraced and led to a flowering of 'absurdist' drama. This paper examines the precise mechanisms for this acceptance, the people involved and the implications for a 'golden age' perspective.
