      A TRAGEDIE

      In 1978, the BBC set itself the task of filming all of William Shakespeare’s plays for television. The resulting productions, renowned for their loyalty to the text, utilised the best theatrical and television directors and brought great performances from leading contemporary actors.

      "Methought I heard a voice cry ‘Sleep no more!
      Macbeth doth murder sleep"

      Shakespeare’s dark tragedy tells of ambition and guilt amidst a background of regicide, violence and the supernatural. When a trio of witches tells returning hero warrior Macbeth that he is fated to become King of Scotland, he attempts to forge his own destiny. Aided and encouraged by his wife, he embarks on a guilt-ridden reign of terror.

      Nicol Williamson (Macbeth) and Jane Lapotaire (Lady Macbeth), both renowned Shakespearian actors, bring a tension and mood to the play rarely seen outside of major theatrical events. Their performances bear testament as to why Macbeth remains one of Shakespeare’s most popular plays and this production has brought its magic to millions.

      In thunder, lightning, or in rain?"

      Nicol Williamson   Jane Lapotaire

      ABOUT MACBETH

      A superior production of this classic dark tale of power obsession corruption regicide insanity and finally retribution . . . Shortly after James VI of Scotland succeeded to the English throne, in 1603, he gave his patronage to Shakespeare’s company; the Lord Chamberlain’s Men became the King’s Men, entering into a special relationship with their sovereign. Macbeth is the play of Shakespeare’s that most clearly reflects this relationship. James regarded the virtuous and noble Banquo, Macbeth’s comrade at the start of the action as his direct ancestor; eight Stuart kings were said to have preceded James, just as, in the play, Banquo points to ‘a show of eight kings’ as his descendants (4.1.1 27.1- 140); and in the play the English king (historically Edward the Confessor) is praised for the capacity, on which James also prided himself to cure ‘the king’s evil’ (scrofula). Macbeth is obviously a Jacobean play, composed probably in 1606.
