BBC Radio has a unique heritage when it comes to Shakespeare. Since 1923, when the newly formed company broadcast its first full-length play, generations of actors and producers have honed and perfected the craft of making Shakespeare to be heard. In this story of evil cunning perverting a once noble mind, radio captures Iago's sly hints and boasts to the audience with shocking clarity. The listener is led along an emotional path that grips with fascinating horror until the play's inevitably tragic conclusion. Revitalised, original, and comprehensive, this is Shakespeare for the new millennium.
Has the witchcraft of Shakespeare’s tragedy – renowned for its violence and murder – transcended the production, or is it simply unlucky?
