Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The six films in this series are a touch uneven, but all are good, and Jeremy Irons on the Hollow Crown and Derek Jacobi on Richard II are wonderful beyond expectation. Joley Richardson's commentary on the comedies, with the help of her grandmother Vanessa is charming and presents points of view not often heard. The other three are just fine, and well worth the watching.
Each film uses clips from many different versions of the plays - Hamlet, Tempest, Macbeth, Henry IV and V, Richard II, As You Like It and Twelfth Knight, to illustrate different ways to approach and interpret the texts. I found it interesting to see that, though acting styles change, the best actors always pull us in to the world of their character. Every episode is a testament to Shakespeare's living genius. The best of writers and the best of actors - what more could anyone want?

Good to see some background stories about Shakespearean productions. It is encouraging to see vast improvements in the portrayal of the plays. I also appreciate that theatres have made their plays available to those who are not able to attend in person.
