: Measure for Measure Live from the Globe

After last year's Richard II, BBC4 again takes its cameras and interactive technology to London's Globe to film Shakespeare's tale of love, morality and the law. The theatre's artistic director Mark Rylance also takes the play's leading role as Vincentio, the Duke of Vienna. BBCi: written commentary available via the red button on the handset

Measure for Measure Live from the Globe 7.00pm BBC4
Following last year's production of Richard 11, here's another Shakespeare play performed live at the Globe Theatre, which re-creates the look and feel of the theatres in the Bard's own era. The Globe's artistic director Mark Rylance stars as Vincentio, the Duke of Vienna, who hands over power to his puritanical deputy, Angelo (Liam Brennan). Under Angelo's new regime, a crackdown on vice threatens to drag in innocent young lovers. Before long, not just virtue but justice itself is under threat when the new ruler tries to take advantage of the virtuous Isabella, played by Sophie Thompson.
With its complex themes and plotting, Measure for Measure is one of Shakespeare's more obscure plays, but with this cast and setting, the production promises to be a real event. Geoff Ellis


Director: Mark Rylance

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
