This production of Henry V directed by Adrian Noble examined Prince Hal's integrity and ability as leader with a focus on his youth - Kenneth Branagh, playing Henry V, was just 24 years old.

The company of actors included many now well-known to TV and film audiences. Besides Branagh in the title role, Brian Blessed played the Duke of Exeter, Patricia Routledge was Mistress Quickly and an 18 year-old Dexter Fletcher played the Boy.
