Gregory Doran Remembers ... Shakespeare Live! From the RSC

Synopsis
Gregory Doran, former Artistic Director of the Royal Shakespeare Company, looks back on the challenges he faced bringing together a cast of acclaimed actors - and even members of the Royal family - for his 2016 live BBC extravaganza, marking 400 years since the death of William Shakespeare.

Doran explains how he pulled off the project; shares his memories of working with the likes of David Tennant, Catherine Tate and a host of acclaimed Shakespeareans and his thoughts on why the Bard remains relevant today.
