Episode 6: Shakespeare in Love

Duration: 40 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC One East MidlandsLatest broadcast: on BBC One Northern Ireland

Series which takes an in-depth look at some classic British films of recent years. Released in 1999, Shakespeare in Love was an unlikely success - a romantic comedy stuffed with wordplay, double-meanings, women pretending to be men and Americans pretending to be English - but audiences loved it and even Shakespearean scholars succumbed. Tom Stoppard's screenplay made bankable stars out of Gwyneth Paltrow and Joseph Fiennes and helped the movie scoop seven Academy Awards. Show less
