This Item Includes Part 1 Of The HENRY VI Trilogy Shakespeare DVDs
Henry VI (Part One)
"Assign'd am I to be the English scourge,
The night the siege assuredly I'll raise;
Expect Saint Martin's summer, halcyon days,
Since I have entered into these wars."
Starring Peter Benson, Brenda Blethyn, Bernard Hill, Trevor Peacock and Brian Protheroe...
As the nation mourns the death of King Henry V, news reaches England of military setbacks in France. After the release of their General, Lord Talbot, the English reclaim lost ground but the appearance of a mystic warrior woman, Joan of Arc inspires the French. Meanwhile, at Henry's court, feuds begin between the lords of the white and red roses...
The first part in the most complete television version of the trilogy, this stylised production recreates Henry's early days as King. Here Oliver Bayldon's set, a children's adventure playground decaying through the trilogy, reflects the disintegrating state of England.
