Shakespeare Re-Told: "Macbeth"
10 December 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I thought it was great.

I am studying "Macbeth" at the present and this has helped me to understand the play better.

Even though it wasn't exactly as I thought it would be, I liked the idea of the three "Witches" a.k.a bin men. They provided the much needed humour in the dramatisation of one of Shakespeare's most famous works.

Watching the programme has helped me raise my grade from a c- to an a-!!

I enjoyed it immensely!!
