Theatre appearance on BBC documentary with Simon Schama Featured

Media

The 3D reconstruction makes an appearance in the recent documentary where historian Simon Schama explores the life and times of William Shakespeare to shed a new and fascinating light on some of the greatest plays ever written.

Aired on BBC on Friday 22nd June In film one, Schama discovers how in his history plays Shakespeare created a rich vision of the nation which still influences and inspires today, presenting not only preening kings and queens for his audience's pleasure but country squires, cutpurses, common prostitutes and of course, his iconic and irreverent embodiment of England, Sir John Falstaff.

Film two explores Shakespeare’s attitude to kings, and how his great tragedies, Hamlet, Macbeth and King Lear, reveal not only what lies behind the mask of royalty, but truths about the rest of us too. Throughout, an extraordinary cast of actors including Judi Dench, Simon Russell Beale, Tobias Menzies, Roger Allam and Harriet Walter deliver some of Shakespeare's most moving and profound soliloquies.
