Sarah Dickinson indulges another reporting fantasy and talks to William Shakespeare just after the first Performance of his play Hamlet. Shakespeare tells how he, a glovemaker's son from Warwickshire, became Britain's foremost actor-manager, and the first dramatist to hold shares in a theatre. Sarah quizzes him about allegations of youthful delinquency, and uncovers the secret force that drives his ambition. There's an extract from the new play, and acerbic comments by Ben Jonson. Shakespeare is played by David Calder. Written and produced by Jim Hiley
