The Hollow Crown is a series of British television films featuring William Shakespeares History Plays. The first Season is an adaptation of Shakespeares second historical tetralogy, the Henriad: Richard II, Henry IV, Part I and Henry IV, Part II (treated as one film in two parts in the series) and Henry V. The Second Season is subtitled "The Wars of the Roses" as a reference to its scope. It is based on Shakespeares first tetralogy: Henry VI: Part I, Henry VI: Part II, Henry VI: Part III (treated as two films in the series) and Richard III.
Shakespeare: The Animated Tales is a series of twelve half-hour animated television episodes, broadcast on BBC 2 between 1992 and 1994, with each episode based on a play by William Shakespeare.
The series was commissioned by BBC Wales for the Welsh language channel S4C. Production was co-ordinated by the Dave Edwards Studio in Cardiff, although the animation was done entirely in Moscow, at the Christmas Films Studio. A variety of animation techniques were used. The scripts were written by children's author Leon Garfield, using primarily Shakespearean language. The academic consultant for the series was Professor Stanley Wells.
The show aired in the US on HBO, where it was hosted by Robin Williams.
In 2000, Chris Grace, Director of Animation at S4C and executive producer of The Animated Tales, launched the Shakespeare Schools Festival using Leon Garfield's twelve abridged scripts. The festival takes place annually, with hundreds of school children performing half-hour shows in professional theatres across the UK.

Complete four part series exploring the life of the world's greatest and most famous writer. Presenter-led, mixing travel, adventure, live action interviews and specially shot documentary and live action sequences with the RSC on the road. A history series - it focuses not on the plays, but on the history and sets the life of the poet in the extraordinary times in which he lived. We are introduced to the dark world of Queen Elizabeth's police state - a time of surveillance, militarism and foreign wars. We are reminded that Shakespeare lived through the Spanish Armada, the Gunpowder Plot, the colonisation of the New World and the beginnings of British power in America. But most importantly Shakespeare also lived through England’s Cultural Revolution: an enforced split with the old medieval English spirit world which was to lead the English people into a brave new Protestant future.
