Shakespeare plays which starts next week with A Midsummer Night's Dream.
Six of the best-loved plays have been magically realised through an unlikely alliance of Russian and Welsh animators.

A series telling the personal stories of ten would-be doctors.
The Knowledge. The students who survived the selection procedure soon face cramming for a series of exams in anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, radiology, pharmacology, and more. This basic knowledge is regarded as essential before students are allowed on hospital wards, yet ten per cent of first-years fail. This film tells the stories of those experiencing an exam process increasingly under attack as a test of memory rather than long-lasting understanding.
