This collection has revolutionized the teaching of Shakespeare as the preeminent production of every Shakespeare play written, performances featured in these productions would otherwise be seen only by the theater elite, in London or New York. When the BBC first undertook this six-year project, it became the most ambitious undertaking ever attempted on film. This was the first time in the 400 years since they were written that all 37 plays would be preserved on tape. Produced by Cedric Messina and Dr. Jonathan Miller, it includes performances by Britain's most distinguished theatrical talent, John Gielgud,Ben Kingsley,Claire Bloom, Anthony Hopkins, Michael York and Derek Jacobi.
