The Hollow Crown: Wars of the Roses (US broadcast)

Postby princess garnet » Fri July 1st, 2016, 4:21 pm

Of interest to US forum members, the popular "Hollow Crown series" will return to "Great Performances" on PBS later this year. :D Yay! It already broadcasted in the UK.

Shakespeare's history plays "Henry VI" and "Richard III" will shown over three Sunday evenings. Check your local PBS station listings. However, if you just can't wait, the DVD of the new series is now available in stores and online.

I'm waiting on my copy from the library. Might only be watching for certain actor.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"

And that actor is well worth it. He got great acclaim over here. However, don't dismiss the rest of the performances. These are very good productions. Henry VI is not thought to be one of the bard's best (and it was a relatively early work). RIII, is one of my favourites probably because it was one of the few that I had lectures on where I actually agreed with the Literature lecturer's interpretation of the history.
