Researchers' Tales: A series of free lectures based on research at the NT Archive

The National are running a series of FREE talks which sound excellent. For further details follow the link:

I am going to at least two of them:

Hamlet at the National Theatre - Colin Bell - Wednesday 11 May 2011, 7-8pm (ie tomorrow!)
A lecture on five productions of Hamlet at the National. Colin Bell discusses the various approaches taken to producing Hamlet at the National: 1963 (Laurence Olivier director, Peter O'Toole as Hamlet), 1975 (Peter Hall director, Albert Finney as Hamlet), 1989 (Richard Eyre director, Daniel Day Lewis/Ian Charleson as Hamlet), 2000 (John Caird director, Simon Russell Beale as Hamlet), 2010 (Nicholas Hytner director, Rory Kinnear as Hamlet).

NT Live, from research to broadcast - David Sabel - Wednesday 15 June 2011, 7-8pm
David Sabel, Head of Digital Media and Producer of NT Live at the National discusses the MBA research which led to his NT producing role. As part of his MBA Sabel undertook a research placement at the National to develop a feasibility study for the broadcast of National Theatre productions to cinemas, the study revealed a longer history of such work than is widely known. Sabel discusses past theatre broadcasts projects and the development and future of NT Live.
