Episode 3 of 3

Duration: 1 hour

The concluding part of Professor James Shapiro's history of Shakespeare in the reign of King James. Shakespeare's late plays, such as The Winter's Tale and The Tempest, are often seen as mellow swansongs. Professor Shapiro gives us a different Shakespeare - a playwright still experimenting and alert to the troubled Jacobean world around him. He closes the series by reflecting on the legacies of king and playwright.
