I have encountered many clips from this series in the past, but I was excited to see recently that all the episodes of this remarkable series are now online at YouTube. I'm speaking of Playing Shakespeare, a series done by the Royal Shakespeare Company back in 1982 (not too long after I first became interested in Shakespeare), a workshop led by English director John Barton, which features a remarkable group of well-known RSC actors: Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Judi Dench, David Suchet, Ben Kingsley, and many others.
Watching such talented Shakespearean actors get inside the text, interact with each other, even disagree with each other from time to time, is a great gift. Oh, if only I had had access to this series back in the days when I was studying acting! I'm looking forward to watching all 9 episodes!
[Don't let the title on YouTube fool you. Despite what it says, the series was first broadcast in 1982. I looked it up on IMDB. And if you can't trust IMDB, who can you trust?]
(adj.) wild and frenzied; from Greek κορυβαντες (Korybantes)
