Episode Description
Saturday, Feb 16, 2013 - 6:00 AM    "Henry IV & Henry V with Jeremy Irons" Jeremy Irons (who stars as Henry IV in the upcoming new GREAT PERFORMANCES film adaptation) uncovers the enduring appeal of Shakespeare's "history plays," from the facts of English history to the father-son drama that Shakespeare created. He discloses what Shakespeare's sources were - and how he distorted them. He invites the viewer behind the scenes at the filming of some of the most important sequences in the new GREAT PERFORMANCES adaptations of both plays, starring Irons, with Tom Hiddleston as Prince Hal.
