In Search Of Shakespeare

For All Time

Episode Guide »
In the final episode, Michael Wood examines Shakespeare's life in the era of King James I. He unearths Shakespeare's neighborhood in London and visits the current queen's robe-makers for evidence of Shakespeare's role in the royal coronation. Shakespeare's world is transformed in 1605 by the Gunpowder Plot, a Jacobean September 11. The entertainment industry responded, and Shakespeare contributed Macbeth, a daring play about the murder of a king. Finally, Wood follows Shakespeare back to Warwickshire and looks at the riddle of Shakespeare's will and its strange bequest to his wife, Anne.
