Publisher's Summary

BBC Radio has a unique heritage when it comes to Shakespeare. Since 1923, when the newly formed company broadcast its first full-length play, generations of actors and producers have honed and perfected the craft of making Shakespeare to be heard.

In this story of evil cunning perverting a once noble mind, radio captures Iago's sly hints and boasts to the audience with shocking clarity. The listener is led along an emotional path that grips with fascinating horror until the play's inevitably tragic conclusion.

Revitalised, original, and comprehensive, this is Shakespeare for the new millennium.

    "Good Way to Understand Shakespeare"

    This BBC series of dramatized Shakespeare's plays is very good. It's so much easier to understand when there are multiple voices, almost as good as a play.

    Story
    "Well done, great performance, held to text"

    The performance was true to the text, with care. The musical interludes were modern, as were some of the sound effects (e.g. the Herald was, cleverly, a radio news bulletin), but they worked.
    The actors were extremely talented. Each was true to his/her character. It was my first full hearing of Othello (although I had seen an updated dramatization called "O" on the screen). I read along and this production was easy to follow in the text. I highly recommend this production for entertainment and education.
