One Week
Broadcast RSC Live: Othello
Wednesday 26 August7pm

Othello is the greatest general of his age.  A fearsome warrior, loving husband and revered defender of Venice against its enemies.

But he is also an outsider whose victories have created enemies of his own, men driven by prejudice and jealousy to destroy him. As they plot in the shadows, Othello realises too late that the greatest danger lies not in the hatred of others, but his own fragile and destructive pride.

After more than a decade working in film and television on projects from Star Wars to Holby City,          Hugh Quarshie returns to the RSC to play Shakespeare's Othello.  He was last seen with the RSC in Faust and Julius Caesar (1996).  Lucian Msamati is Iago, returning to the RSC following his role as Pericles in 2006. 

The production is directed by Iqbal Khan (Much Ado About Nothing, 2012).

Broadcast NT Live: The Beaux' Stratagem
Thursday 3 September7pm

National Theatre Live: The Beaux' Stratagem

Simon Godwin (Man and Superman) directs George Farquhar's wild comedy of love and cash.

The ‘Beaux’: Mr Aimwell and Mr Archer, two charming, dissolute young men who have blown their fortunes in giddy London.  Shamed and debt-ridden, they flee to provincial Lichfield.  Their ‘Stratagem’: to marry for money.

Lodged at the local inn, posing as master and servant, they encounter a teeming variety of human obstacles: a crooked landlord, a fearsome highwayman, a fervent French Count, a maid on the make, a drunken husband, a furious butler, a natural healer and a strange, turbulent priest.

But their greatest obstacle is love.  When the Beaux meet their match in Dorinda and Mrs Sullen they are most at risk, for in love they might be truly discovered.

A 30 minute programme - exclusive to cinemas -  will include a close up tour of a Spitfire and veteran fighter pilots recounting their memories of the Battle Of Britain.

The Battle Of Britain At 75 comes from the producers of the multi-award winning D-Day 70 Years On.

Broadcast Roger Waters The Wall  (CertTBC)
Tuesday 29 September8pm

Roger Waters The Wall

An opportunity to see a preview of the film with live satellite link of in conversation with Roger Waters after the screening.

Roger Waters, co-founder and primary songwriter of Pink Floyd, fuses the epic and the personal in Roger Waters The Wall.

Written and directed by Waters and Sean Evans, and filmed during Waters’ sold-out 2010–2013 The Wall Live tour, it is a concert film that goes well beyond the stage, giving audiences a visceral sense of being present and experiencing the performance in a way that not even the best seat or backstage pass could afford.
Based on the groundbreaking concept album, Roger Waters The Wall could be called a concept film: it’s a state-of-the-art show that dazzles the senses with pyrotechnics, phantasmagoric puppets, stunning animations, audio effects and 360-degree sound, combined with an intensely personal road trip that deals with the loss Roger has felt throughout his life due to war. It’s bravura entertainment – yet it’s also a spectacle with meaning, a stirring anti-war film about the human cost of conflict.

Broadcast RSC Live: Henry V
Wednesday 21 October7pm
            Henry V

In the week of the 600th anniversary of the       Battle of Agincourt, a chance to see Henry V broadcast live by RSC from Stratford-upon-Avon.

Henry IV is dead and Hal is King. With England in a state of unrest, he must leave his rebellious youth behind, striving to gain the respect of his nobility and people.

Laying claim to parts of France and following an insult from the French Dauphin, Henry gathers his troops and prepares for a war that he hopes will unite his country.

RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran continues his exploration of Shakespeare’s History Plays with Henry V performed in the 600th anniversary year of the Battle of Agincourt.  Following his performance as Hal in Henry IV Parts I & II, Alex Hassell returns as Henry V.
