'Macbeth' - about the 2011 RSC production

Michael Boyd and Tom Piper talk about their production and how the design is informed by the period in which 'Macbeth' was written: the Protestant Reformation and the Gunpowder Plot. They explore supernatural elements of the play, how the porter is portrayed as Satan and the witches as Macduff's dead children.
