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.

Each word of this production builds a picture of richness and complexity of Shakespeare's characters. The clarity of radio gives added poignancy to the young Prince's struggles and greater depth to Falstaff's exuberance.

    " This is obviously a 5 and by far my favorite so far of the histories, but I fear I have much more learning and rereading to do before I can officially change its ranking and fully articulate why. "

About the Author
Author William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
