David Tennant, whose own RSC performance was a huge hit, meets other actors who have played the legendary role - from David Warner in the 1960s to the recent Jude Law. He also tries, assisted by Simon Russell Beale and Ben Whishaw, to unravel the meaning of the play and the reason why it is considered by many people to be Shakespeare's greatest work.
