From the BBC News:

On 16 February 1923 the BBC broadcast its first radio drama – the Quarrel Scene from Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. To mark the anniversary, BBC Radio Drama have recorded a new version of the scene – which will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 Extra.

Thousands of actors have embraced the medium of radio since the early days. Take a look back at what has changed through the decades – with the BBC’s head of audio drama Alison Hindell.

There’s a fantastic slideshow with narration attached to the story; check it out here.
