What a splendid picture. What a splendid cast! For Shakespeare’s 383rd birthday, members of the Old Vic Theatre Company appearing in Richard II at the New Theatre, London, recorded their production for a BBC Home Service transmission on this day in 1947. In the studio, left to right, George Ralph (Duke of York); Alec Guinness (King Richard); Nicholas Hannen (Earl of Northumberland); Margaret Leighton (Queen); Ralph Richardson (John of Gaunt) and Harry Andrews (Henry Bolingbroke).
