The importance of Shakespeare

We looked at Shakespeare as a new BBC season on the Bard attempts to bring the dramas to a fresh audience.

Tim Muffett went on set of one adaptation with Jeremy Irons and Tom Hiddleston and we were joined in the studio by Sir Richard Eyre who directed two of the programmes.

You can watch Henry the Fourth Part 1 on Saturday 7th July at 9pm on BBC Two, and The Hollow Crown Richard II is on the BBC iPlayer.
