This is a typical English production of Shakespeare. It's a play which happens to be on film. The sets are simple stage design, just like any BBC production. However, unlike a BBC production, the acting is not very good in this production. David Birney, probably best known for marrying NBC's "Family Ties" mom Meredith Baxter, is laughable as Richard. The rest of the cast is tolerable, but every scene Richard dominates is painful to watch.
