Julius Caesar

Television programme for schools featuring television actors not usually associated with Shakespeare in scenes from Julius Caesar. They use contemporary settings, which aim to illustrate the relevance of Shakespeare’s ideas today. Discussion of the motivation of the major character is supported by clips from past television and film productions, and followed by a full performance of the chosen scene. It takes a scene from Julius Caesar (Act 3, Scene 1) and sets it in a TV studio. Patrick Robinson plays Mark Antony and discusses his character.
