An Age of Kings (DVD, 2013)

An Age of Kings is BBC Television's compelling 15-episode production from 1960 of William Shakespeare’s great national pageant of eight History plays.
Hailed by The Guardian as a ‘tremendous project ... ambitious ... exciting ... a striking example of the creative use of television', this broadcast landmark has been entirely unavailable in Britain for more than fifty years. Yet its drama of power politics, betrayals, deceptions and deadly rivalries is as alive as ever. So too is the beauty of some of Shakespeare's greatest poetry and prose.

An Age of Kings is distinguished by many outstanding performances, including Robert Hardy, Eileen Atkins, Judi Dench and Sean Connery at the beginning of their successful careers. More than five decades after it was first seen, An Age of Kings is vivid and vibrant drama, with an unparalleled clarity and immediacy, sense of scale and poetic depth.
