QI: Immortal Bard

In a special show to celebrate the Shakespeare Season, Stephen Fry investigates the Immortal Bard.

Stephen is joined by Sue Perkins, Bill Bailey, David Mitchell and Alan Davies. Suitably attired in Shakespearean garb, they tirelessly discuss a wealth of Quite Interesting Bard facts. Questions range from “Which West End musicals are based on Shakespearean plays?” to “When David Tennant played Hamlet at the RSC, what did Tchaikovsky play?”; and from “How did Shakespeare’s Bottom get to Norwich?” to “How did Christopher Marlowe die?”

The director is Ian Lorimer, and the producers are Piers Fletcher and John Lloyd.
