ALL 37 PRODUCTIONS FROM THE BBC TELEVISION SHAKESPEARE SERIES

William Shakespeare’s repute spans the world – the beauty of his language, his profound insight into human nature and the complexity and integrity of his characters, confirming him as the greatest ever playwright. These BBC adaptations, renowned for their loyalty to the text, utilise the best theatrical and television talent to bring the full glory of his plays to the small screen.

In 1978, the BBC set itself the task of filming all of William Shakespeare’s plays for television. The series – beginning with Romeo and Juliet and concluding, nearly seven years later, with Titus Andronicus – featured adaptations of all 36 First Folio plays, plus Pericles, Prince of Tyre. Ranging from traditional interpretations to adventurous, stylised approaches – and featuring such great actors as John Gielgud, Jane Lapotaire, Claire Bloom, Derek Jacobi, Anthony Hopkins, Prunella Scales, Patrick Stewart, Helen Mirren and John Cleese – the resulting productions form a magnificent and unique collection of the Shakespeare canon.
