I've always been amazed that the BBC never issued this on video, as it stands as a superb piece of drama. The updated setting bring a rawness to the work that is so often lost. Of particular note are the interpretation of the witches and Lady Macbeth. Her performance in the nursery brings a poignancy to the character that is rarely attained.
