Very Insightful

By Tracy Swedlow

Comments about PBS Shakespeare Uncovered, Series 1 DVD:

My knowledge grew with every episode especially the ones with Trevor Nunn, David Tennant and Jeremy Irons. The one with Trevor Nunn was incredibly moving, though I had an insight about the meaning of this play and who the characters are that he did not in addition to his own. I appreciate the very textured "360" approach overall. Could be a great interactive TV or iPad app! Really marvellous work everybody. Thank you to those who supported this work financially. I am/we are forever grateful. -- Tracy

Useful, interesting Shakespeare

Comments about PBS Shakespeare Uncovered, Series 1 DVD:

The discussions are interesting, and illustrated with scenes from the plays.The comments are well done by actors who have done the pays. They show what is going on and why in the plays. Especially good are Dereck Jacobi and Jeremy Irons. Very good for classrooms or home viewing.

Wonderful Insights

By Forlily

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS Shakespeare Uncovered, Series 1 DVD:

This series provides superb insight into many of Shakespeare's major plays and their productions. I could have done without the aside by Derek Jacobi and some of Ethan Hawke's comments. But otherwise these episodes provide wonderful analyses.
