Hollow Crowns looks at the subject of Shakespeare's great tragedies Hamlet, Macbeth and King Lear - kingship. He lived through the reigns of two extraordinary monarchs: Elizabeth I and James I. Elizabeth was a consummate royal performer in decline. James was an eccentric intellectual who had an obsession with witchcraft and believed he was God's deputy on earth. Shakespeare's theatre company often played at court so he was able to observe the frailty, vanity and folly of kings first hand, this firing his obsession with what lay behind the mask of royalty. In his tragedies Shakespeare stripped away that mask to show kings murdering their way to the throne and going mad. Somehow, he got away with it. Hollow Crowns explores how in his great tragedies he revealed profound truths not just about kings and queens, but about the rest of us too.

Simon Schama looks at how after the Protestant Reformation, the nation was bitterly divided along religious lines - a fault-line which ran through Shakespeare's own family. In what is believed to be his first play, Henry VI, Shakespeare began to explore English history and the English character in a new and unprecedented way. Shakespeare's England wasn't just a place where kings and queens strutted and preened. In Henry VI English men and women took centre stage with breathtaking boldness. This England explores the democratic vision that Shakespeare expanded upon in his masterpiece: Henry IV. In Henry IV England was presented in glorious technicolour; country squires and common prostitutes, kings and cutpurses. And in the ironic and irreverent character of Sir John Falstaff Shakespeare created an embodiment of Englishness; a character that transfixed Elizabethan audiences and still moves and entertains us today.

Recorded live from Shakespeare's Globe Theatre. Starring Jamie Parker as King Henry V, Brendan O'Hea as Captain Fluellen/Bishop of Ely, Brid Brennan as Chorus/Queen Isabel and Sam Cox as Pistol. Shakespeare's masterpiece of the turbulence of war and the arts of peace tells the romantic story of Henry's campaign to recapture the English possessions in France. But the ambitions of this charismatic king are challenged by a host of vivid characters caught up in the real horrors of war. Henry V, opened with the words 'O for a muse of fire', celebrates the power of language to summon into life courts, pubs, ships and battlefields within the 'wooden O' - and beyond.

In this documentary, celebrated soprano Natalie Dessay joins forces with innovative theatre and opera director Jean-Francois Sivadier. The pair work with the London Symphony Orchestra to craft a production of Verdi's La Traviata at the Aix-en-Provence Festival in France. From rehearsals through to performance, director Philippe Beziat documents the 'Sivadier Method'. This unorthodox approach abandons crinolines, chandeliers and cliched choreography, aiming to bring performers closer to their audiences. In French and Italian.
