BBC presents the classic play by William Shakespeare. Ron Cook plays the tyrant king in Jane Howell's production of Shakespeare's great history play. Overbrimming with ambition and jealousy, the duplicitous Richard will stop at nothing to claim his brother's throne. One by one Richard eliminates all those who stand in his way but, on the eve of the battle of Bosworth Field, the ghosts of his victims appear to foretell his defeat.
