Derek Jacobi is one of Britain’s most celebrated and respected actors. He first left his mark on the stage after being invited by Laurence Olivier to become a founding member of the Royal National Theater. Jacobi has played most of Shakespeare’s major roles, but it was his performance as a stammering Roman emperor in the epic BBC series I, Claudius that brought him international attention. Acorn Media has just released a 35th anniversary edition of I, Claudius on DVD. And last year the company released Discovering Hamlet, a 1990 documentary about Jacobi’s directorial debut with Kenneth Branaugh as Hamlet. [Broadcast Date: June 18, 2012]
