The Hollow Crown: Shakespeare's History Plays
Shakespeare Uncovered: Richard II

You may my glories and my state depose, but not my griefs; still am I king of those. Derek Jacobi looks at Richard II and returns to a role he played 30 years ago: the story of a king who loses his crown. Shakespeare Uncovered combines history, biography, iconic performances, new analysis, and the personal passions of its celebrated hosts Derek Jacobi and Jeremy Irons to tell the stories behind these great plays. Watch more from the Shakespeare Uncovered series.
