Summary
  • The Hollow crown: New adaptations of Shakespeare's tetralogy of history plays comprising the 'Henriad' for the BBC's 2012 Cultural Olympiad: King Richard; II King Henry IV, Part 1; King Henry IV, Part 2 and King Henry V. The plays chronicle a continuous period in British history from the end of the 14th century to the aftermath of the Battle of Agincourt in 1415. Together, the plays comprise a story with recurring themes of power struggles, redemption, family conflict and betrayal -- IMDB
  • Richard II: King Richard, a vain, self-indulgent man who rules with little regard for his people's welfare, is called upon to settle a dispute between his cousin Henry Bolingbroke and Thomas Mowbray. In an act that will spell doom for his reign, he banishes both men, and sets into motion a chain of events that will change British history forever
  • Henry IV, part 1: King Henry IV sees his reign marred by uprisings led by young Harry Hotspur and undercut by the impulsive, irresponsible actions of his son Prince Hal. As the stakes get even higher, both sides converge in the epic battle of Shrewsbury
  • Henry IV, part 2. The increasingly frail King Henry staves off insurrection following the battle of Shrewsbury and the rise of his son, Prince Hal, who will ascend to the throne as Henry V
  • Henry V: Prince Hal's journey continues. Recently crowned King, he has scarcely settled onto the throne when the French ambassador brings a challenge to his rule. Inspired by his courtiers Exeter and York, Henry swears that he will answer the French with all force. The stage is set for all-out-war, and the young ruler must overcome incredible odds and self-doubt to win the day
