BBC Radio has a unique heritage when it comes to Shakespeare. Since 1923, when the newly formed company broadcast its first full-length play, generations of actors and producers have honed and perfected the craft of making Shakespeare to be heard.
The trees and shrubs resonate with declarations of love and confessions of assumed identity in this exciting new production, where the intimacy of radio brilliantly recreates the closed-off, magical world of the Forest of Arden.
Revitalised, original, and comprehensive, this is Shakespeare for the new millennium.

Shoot that Bard
I did like this interpretation of As You Like It. I chose the more modern version because I'm doing a modern interpretation of As You Like It and am cast as Rosalind and wanted to hear Helena's interpretation of Rosalind. My only complaint is that the singer who plays the Bard is so annoying that I've found myself forwarding through his songs to get to the next scene. The audio book rocks. But I want to shoot the Bard.
