Painstakingly designed and meticulously rendered each play is characterised by some of the country's finest acting talent, including Felicity Kendal, Alun Armstrong, Joss Ackland, Jenny Agutter, Zoe Wanamaker, Timothy West, Hugh Grant and Martin Jarvis, who lend pathos, comedy and a staggering humanity to these wonders of artistry.

Includes the following:

I. Tragedy
Macbeth
Hamlet
Romeo & Juliet
Othello

II. Comedy
Twelfth Night
As You Like It
A Midsummer Night's Dream
The Taming of the Shrew
The Winter's Tale

III History

I can only guess Ricky302 that you haven't seen any of these because if you had then you'd be saying quite the opposite. These are all a work of art in their own right and I'm sure Willy S would be proud and honoured to have his works given such fantastic makeover

this looks good

Amazing price (and 4% Quidco). Some of these adaptations are pretty good, as I recall.

I'd buy the Chaucer Animated Tales as well, if there was an edition with the Middle English audio.

Many thanks to the OP for this.

Brilliant stuff for the ancient rellies to watch after Christmas lunch - will have them rotating in their bathchairs.

Thanks Andy, nice spot. Ordered.

Try teaching full versions to a group of bottom set year 9 kids who collectively have so many social, emotional and behaviour issues that would make Ted Bundy spin in his!!

These versions are ideal for these kids - not seen one yet that hated them.

I remember these from the good ol' school days. Not my cup of tea, but nothing against them. Good price, heat added.

Watch them on youtube for free.

Anyone got theirs yet?
Had a card from postie today saying 'too big for letterbox....etc' and have to wait till Monday to collect.
Hoping it was this.

Check your order status Andy,mine says on back order and I got in fairly early. I'm not expecting it any time soon, shame really as it would help my daughter with school. Hope you get yours as it was a good spot.

Nothing heard for me either. Placed on the 2nd and acknowledged but nothing since. Have just emailed them to ask what's happening but won't hold my breath.

Mine also on back order,placed on the 2nd.However,i ordered two copies,one was cancelled,when i enquired as to why,i was informed it was a 'one item per customer offer'.Does anyone else remember seeing this stated on their site as i believe they have moved the goalposts and are using that line as an excuse.Not happy.

Has anyone received their order yet?
