Live broadcasts to cinemas around the world from Shakespeare’s home town

Richard II

Production diary 13
22 November 2013

Our final production diary for Richard II focuses on the schools broadcast that happened on Friday 15 November 2013.

We talked to Jayne Welsh, the director of language for learning at St Albans Academy about the reasons why she'd decided that all 300 students in years 7, 8 and 9 should see the broadcast at her school.

'In terms of seeing a production, this for many will be their first time,' she says.

Watch the clip to see what the children thought about the broadcast and Jayne's recommendations for other schools who want to be involved in future broadcasts.
