Trivia

The first television production of William Shakespeare's "King John". It was transmitted live from the BBC Lime Grove Studios and was not recorded so the repeat performance broadcast on 24 January 1952 was a restaging of the first with the same cast and crew. There were minor differences between the two versions but they were separate productions. See more »
