Part Two Of Macbeth With David Tennant Airs On Radio 4 Today

The concluding episode of David Tennant's Macbeth airs this afternoon at 3pm BST on BBC Radio 4. 

It can be listened to worldwide via BBC Sounds and the BBC Radio 4 website here. It will also be available after broadcast.

The radio drama sees David Tennant make his first ever venture into playing the tyrannical Scottish King.

A brave Scottish general named Macbeth receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth murders the reigning King Duncan and takes the Scottish throne for himself. He is then wracked with guilt and paranoia. Forced to commit more and more murders to protect himself from enmity and suspicion, he soon becomes a tyrannical ruler. The bloodbath and consequent civil war swiftly take Macbeth and Lady Macbeth into the realms of madness and death.
