Englsih actors Eileen Atkins and Brian Cox use a Tudor castle as the setting for this introduction to Shakespeare. Playing all the roles in segments from three of his plays, then stepping out of character to explain, analyse and question, they reveal the essence of Shakespeare’s genius - and his remarkable understanding of the deepest motivations and darkest emotions of man.
