Shakespeare's An age of kings by William Shakespeare( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When An Age of Kings was first broadcast, it was the most conceptually ambitious Shakespeare project ever attempted for either film or television. Its fifteen parts encompassed Richard II, both parts of Henry IV, Henry V, all three parts of Henry VI and Richard III, effectively presenting a chronological history of British royalty from 1377 to 1485. An Age of Kings' adapter Eric Crozier cut the text into schedule-friendly 60 and 75 minute episodes. These mostly comprised half a complete play, though Henry VI Part I was reduced to a single hour-long episode."--British FiIm Institute
Morning heroes ; Hymn to Apollo by Arthur Bliss( )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Works of wistful sadness, anguish, and anger moves like a procession of supplicants. Like many of his works, these were composed as a tribute to his brother Kennard who had died on the front during WWI. Both works were premiered in the 30's to immediate success but have been rather neglected since then
