David Giles in Richard II

Richard II

1978 NR

A dispute between his cousin and a nobleman launches a conflict that will change the course of Richard II's monarchy. When the king seizes the opportunity for his own political gain, it sets his epic downfall in motion. Derek Jacobi stars as Richard II and John Gielgud plays John of Gaunt in this exquisite presentation, which is part of the BBC's series of the complete works of William Shakespeare.
