With extracts from: "Othello", "The Merchant of Venice", "Long Day's Journey into Night", "Sleuth", "Marathon Man", "The Collection", "The Boys from Brazil" and "King Lear".
Among those taking part are Michael Blakemore, Michael Caine, Sir John Gielgud, Derek Granger, Sir Peter Hall, Charlton Heston, Bernard Levin, Jonathan Miller, John Schlesinger, Peter Ustinov, Toyah Willcox and Terence Young.
