This outstanding historical recording made in 1941 for radio is widely regarded as one of the finest Hamlet performances ever, and one of John Gielgud's greatest moments. Though he went on to record it for commercial release, nothing matched this recording in the BBC studios, made before the days of editing. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Jean-Pierre Vidrine | 2/20/2014

    " Steven Grant and Tom Mandrake have crafted here what is almost a perfect artistic adaptation of William Shakespeare's classic play. What prevented it from being absolutely perfect was page number limit of this format. Would that Grant and Mandrake could revisit this story without a page limit and do an unedited adaptation of my favorite Shakespeare play. Whenever I reread the play itself, now, I will picture Mandrake's illustrations of Hamlet and his father. "

    " Only Shakespeare I ever enjoyed (once I decoded it, of course). Hamlet's is a story we are all able to relate to: not being able to get anything done. "
