Event Originally produced by Ambrose Video in 1984.
Summary This production is part of a famous series produced by BBC of all of William Shakespeare's plays. The resulting films, renowned for their loyalty to the text, utilized the best theatrical and television directors and brought highly praised performances from leading contemporary actors. Prince Harry's father figures are aging. While the King frets about the Prince's lifestyle, Falstaff continues to make merry. But there are serious matters afoot. Prince John has to lead the King's army against an uprising, and Hal is forced to reassess his attitude to responsibility as his father grows increasingly sick. Retaining the same cast and director as Part One, this production assuredly charts the transformation of the Prince. It reflects the plays' darker and more intimate focus, but contrasts it with colorful scenes from Falstaff's Eastcheap as well as the bucolic Gloucestershire of Shallow and Silence.
