All of Shakespeare's plays will be performed in an international multi-lingual showcase as part of the 2012 Cultural Olympiad.

Tom Bird, Director of the Globe to Globe festival, travelled around the world to help 37 different theatre companies perform the Bard's plays in their own language at London's Globe theatre.

Joseph Abuk, from the South Sudanese Theatre Company, told BBC Breakfast about the company's involvement in the festival.
