The BBC’s Radio 4 will put on a 24 hour tribute to Ulysses on June 16th, commonly known as Bloomsday, to correspond with the events as depicted in Joyce’s text, which is set on June 16th, 1904.  The characters, themes, and events that take place in Ulysses will be the running theme throughout the day’s broadcast schedule.   Among these broadcast events, will be a new dramatization of the novel that will be read in installments throughout the day, with Henry Goodman starring as Leopold Bloom and Andrew Scott as Stephen Dedalus.  These broadcast events are scheduled to begin at 9 am and conclude just before the midnight news.   Here is a link to the BBC’s page with more information about the Bloomsday programming.
