Shakespeare Uncovered: David Tennant on Hamlet

David Tennant, who played Hamlet in a 2008 Royal Shakespeare Company production, explores the different approaches actors have taken to the role of the troubled Danish prince. Alongside Simon Russell Beale and Ben Whishaw, he explores why the play is often regarded as Shakespeare's finest work, and examines how 16th-century audiences might have reacted to it. He also explains why he believes its popularity has endured to the present day, and how its themes continue to resonate in the modern world.

The programme screens on BBC2 at 11.20pm today.

Recorded this, watched it yesterday and found it very interesting. Little disappointed in Jude Law's contribution – but always nice to see him anyway. :-))

As usual, I have Skyplussed it and will get onto it eventually. Not a priority at the moment. Betrayal is - before it disappears off iPlayer!
