|aPart one: 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 the red roses... The first part in the most complete television 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
|aPart three: When defeat at St. Albans forces Henry to cede succession to the House of York, an infuriated Queen Margaret fights on, determined her son will be the next king. But with the Duke of York's death in battle, the future of the the throne is once again thrown into question. Shakespeare's final War of the Roses instalment continues the descent of an ordered world into chaos. Outstanding among the play's characters are the ruthless Margaret (brilliantly played by Julia Foster) and the increasingly alienated and enraged anti-hero Richard of Gloucester (Ron Cook)
|aPart two: As Henry's marriage to Margaret cedes the last of his father's French gains, the presence of a weak king encourages dissent. Feuds rage between Gloucester and Beaufort and between York's faction and the other lords until York sets up Jack Cade to lead a popular revolt. This 'repertory cast' performance continues Shakespeare's ambitious 'War of the Roses' trilogy. By using actors in multiple roles, director Jane Howell highlights the similarities and contrasts between various characters throughout the story
