This is about as good of a film as could be made on the subject. Physical things (artifacts), places, and most of all, documents, are shown, not just mentioned. The presenter's joy and enthusiasm shine through and hearten and encourage the viewer.

Michael Woods is amazing > Shakespear is amazing ~ 420

This is a very fascinating informative documentary in which Michael Wood advances the premise that much of the mystery surrounding Shakespeare's life is that he was a Catholic living in the Elizabethan police state. Wood traces his family history and roots and ties his writing to events in his personal life.

I have watched this documentary several times and find something new and exciting each time. If you are a lover of Shakespeare, this one is for you. Michael Wood is brilliant, as always.

This is one of the best documentaries I have seen...Very in-depth research and history. Shakespeare lived a pretty tortured life, which led him to be a great writer who understood humanity. One of those few people who had the courage to try his best to change the world for the better....

and we think our every move is watched and documented. those dudes found Shakespeare's and his dad's movements during his lifetime documented in different documents. 17th century had no computers, but a lot of spies and family histories.
