It was amazing. I've watched it many times.
14 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

This was indeed an amazing television production. Having not been an expert on Shakespeare, I was prepared to feel "lost" when I sat down to watch BBC 4's Richard II live from the Globe. On the contrary, I have never felt more drawn into a television experience before. At the beginning the presenter talked with Shakespeare actors and scholars who set up the plot and discussed its themes. And through the course of this film I had the feeling that this is the way it is meant to be seen, in front of a live, reactive audience. It felt alive. The cast was brilliant and want to see more. When will these live performances be available on DVD?
