Summary:
In The Steps William Shakespeare London & Stratford
In this documentary, viewers follow the trail of the Bard from Stratford to London, standing in the places where Shakespeare may have stood, as they visit 18 major sites associated with Shakespeare and his plays, including the Tower of London, St. Paul's Cathedral, the Middle Temple for law students, George Tavern, Southwark Cathedral, the Globe Theatre, Trinity Church, the King Edward VI Grammar School, Anne Hathaway's cottage, Shottery, Wilmcote, Kenilworth Castle, the Mary Arden Farm and more. In addition, viewers will discover the kinds of plays performed at Stratford in Shakespeare's youth along with an introduction to the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.

Shakespeares Globe Restored
Witness this historically significant production of Much Ado About Nothing, the first recorded Elizabethan production on the newly rebuilt Globe stage in London.

Shakespeare's Globe Theatre Restored video documents eighteen months of planning, rehearsal, location work, and post-production by the University of California at Berkeley Shakespeare Program, culminating in the performance of one of Shakespeare's greatest plays.

Visit the fully operational restored Globe Theatre on the Bankside of the river Thames, near its original site and experience how the reconstructed Elizabethan Theatre provides a venue for teaching and studying Shakespeare's plays in the ultimate authentic performance setting.

The Shakespeare Conspiracy
Who was the man who wrote these plays and poems? Was the author a grain-dealer named William Shakespeare born in Stratford-upon-Avon or Edward de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford? Why there was a 400 year-old conspiracy to hide the true author?

This video provides a stimulating and controversial point of view that is bound to provoke classroom discussion and independent study of the Authorship issue.

Drawing on original 16th century documents and the Oxford Bible, this film makes a full investigation into the lives of both Edward de Vere and William Shakspere of Stratford-upon-Avon.

Revealing the former as someone already in his own lifetime revered as the best for comedies and the latter as a man who led a double life: prosperous merchant at home, well-paid frontman to the Elizabethan era's greatest poet in London.

This documentary also examines modern attitudes of scholars with a vested interest in the Stratfordian myth and their suppression of relevant facts to this very day.

Sir Derek Jacobi is a protégé of the legendary Lawrence Olivier and was a good friend of Sir John Gielgud. He has starred in Shakespeare roles in London and on Broadway and is a Broadway Tony winner for his performance in Much Ado About Nothing. Recently he has starred as Gracchus in the blockbuster movie Gladiator.
