Summary
  • Richard III: Begins by recapitulating the final scene of Henry IV, Part III with Edward IV being crowned king. In the background of the celebration, Richard jealously views the proceedings. Soon afterwards, Edward IV is murdered, drowned in a vat of wine. Richard becomes king and, after proceeding with a succession of intrigues and duplicities, he finds his kingdom in dire peril, set upon by Henry Tudor and mustering a final defense for his realm at the Battle of Bosworth. An immortal tale of lust, murder, treachery and the ruthless pursuit of power
  • Great Acting, Laurence Olivier: In this program from the BBC2, Kenneth Tynan interviews Laurence Olivier, with special emphasis on some of the highlights of his distinguished career and Shakespeare films, with excerpts from the films "Henry V", "Hamlet", "Richard III", "Othello", and "The Entertainer"
