Within the last few years, the BBC (and PBS as a re-show) have been doing The Hollow Crown, the Shakespeare History Plays done from Richard II to RIchard III. The first 3 parts (bascially 3 movies) were shown around the time of the London Olympics and then a year later in the U.S. (Where my local PBS did not show Richard II). The second grouping with Benedict Cumberbatch as Richard III is 2016. The original Hollow Crown, was An Age of Kings, and was done in 1960. It featured, among others, Sean Connery as Hotspur.
So why listen to this?
Because it goes one better. Done in 1977,VR chronicles the throne from Edward II all the way to the birth of Elizabeth I. The plays are not limited to Shakespeare, Marlowe is present, but in addition, some plays of unknown authorship are used. All plays date from the reigns of Elizabeth I and James I (VI).
More importantly, are the actors cast. If you saw An Age of Kings, you will have the pleasure of listening to Robert Hardy play Henry IV (he was Hal in Kings). Derek Jacobi is Richard II.
Oh, and Sir Richard Burton is the narrator.
Seriously, what more do you want?
