BBC Radio 3 is presenting a series of programmes on late Harold Pinter from 16- 19 Feb 2009.

Radio 3’s The Essay will look at Pinter’s work and his association with Ireland.
Night Waves on 18 Feb 2009 will be devoted to The Homecoming.  The 45-minute programme will see presenter Philip Dodd and his guests examine the play and discuss how its themes reveal the writer’s long-standing preoccupations.
Radio 3 will also broadcast Pinter’s 1993 play Moonlight and his 2005 radio piece Voices.
