Season 1, Episode 4 The Tempest With Trevor Nunn

First Aired: February 8, 2013

In the finale, director Trevor Nunn—who has helmed productions of 30 Shakespeare plays—examines the Bard's final complete play, "The Tempest," which he sees as Shakespeare's farewell to the stage and inspired by issues drawn from the playwright's life. Among those Nunn meets with to discuss the play: Helen Mirren and director Julie Taymor, who collaborated on the 2010 film adaptation of the same name; and the former Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Rowan Williams.
