  • 01:30 Directed it with Ralph Fiennes in 2012, but nothing was filmed.
  • 01:50 Decides to do an experimental play at the end of his career (shows productions photos of his Ralph Fiennes production). Shakespeare may have played the leading role himself. Why not? Last play + last performance?
  • 03:00 Films back to 1911 production.
  • 04:00 How do we become who we are? What does it mean to be human? To fall in love? Fathers¬† / daughters.

  • 06:00 Nunn: 150 years ahead of Robinson Crusoe. Access to books, but uniquely for this play no existing fictional story. Justin Champion: Sir Thomas Gates’ expedition to the Bermudas.
  • 09:10 Globe open to sky, so not good for special effects. Dromgoole on this problem.
  • 10:00 Rehearsing in reconstruction of Blackfriars theatre in Stanton, Virginia. Sound effects for the storm.
  • 14:00 Rowan Williams: On Prospero having been treated badly.
