Hamlet Preview

BBC Two have uploaded a very exciting preview video of Hamlet here.

Press release follows:
The Royal Shakespeare Company's award-winning production of Hamlet, directed by RSC Chief Associate Director Gregory Doran, stars David Tennant in the title role.

This screen version of Shakespeare's great tragedy retains the quality and tone of the critically-acclaimed stage production but was filmed on location. All key original members of the cast, including Patrick Stewart as Claudius, star in this special 180-minute production, alongside the same creative team. The film is directed by Gregory Doran and designed by Robert Jones, who also designed the stage production. Chris Seager is Director of Photography and the producers are John Wyver and Seb Grant.
To support this new film of Hamlet, a rich online BBC website is being created in collaboration with the RSC, featuring behind-the-scenes stills and footage; specially-shot interviews with the actors talking about their characters and their approach to the play; interviews with the director and other key backstage personnel; and a comprehensive range of links through to the full depth of BBC Learning's content on Shakespeare and RSC Education's content on Shakespeare in performance.
