The Open University and the BBC are co-producing a new film of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar along with six 10 minute behind-the-scenes featurettes based on The Royal Shakespeare Company’s (RSC) current production of the play. The film, made by production company Illuminations, will screen on BBC Four on Sunday 24th June, 8pm as part of the BBC’s Shakespeare Unlocked season. The featurettes – a collaboration between Illuminations and The Open University for OpenLearn, The Open University’s free learning site – will explore the film, its makers, and the thinking behind it.
