Terrific insights and a great educational tool

By English Teacher Barbara

Comments about PBS Shakespeare Uncovered, Series 1 DVD:

I am had seen this series when it aired on PBS, and thought it would be a great way to deepen my high school students' understanding of the Shakespeare plays we read. The students love hearing about the acting process and unique insights the actors provide as they deepen their understanding of how to portray the characters. The background information and locations help my students grasp the historical context, and picture the locations when they read. Thanks for making this helpful series available.

I always like Shakespeare, and this is a good way,
to understand it better, from the actors who have played in his plays. To see the plays as they do.

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

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.
