Two discs with six stories. I did not find it as interesting as I expected. The costumes, actors and scenery were all first rate but the stories are too contrived and some lack credibility in parts. There is, for instance, no mention of the fact that Shakespeare took plays from Langhorne's edition of "Plutarch Live" (of which I have a copy) viz "Antony and Cleopatra" and "Julius Caesar" among other sources for plays.
The second disc was better except for "The Loved Boy" which I thought was too PC for its time. It also never mentions that Shakespeare also acted in his plays until 1604.
Having said all that it is a clever, and sometimes accurate, portrayal of some historical facts. Light viewing. Not to be taken seriously.
