Knights Of Classic Drama At The BBC
BBC Four, 9.00pm GMT
In the first of a two-part series, the BBC delves into its archives to discover British acting greats as they take their first tentative steps on the road to success. Long before they were knighted for their services to drama, we see early appearances from Michael Caine in a rare Shakespearean role, Ben Kingsley, Ian McKellen, Derek Jacobi and Michael Gambon.

Featuring unique behind-the-scenes footage alongside a wealth of classic British productions like War and Peace, the Mayor of Casterbridge and the Singing Detective, it reveals many career-defining moments from the first generation of acting talent to fully embrace television drama.

Knights Of Classic Drama At The BBC was produced by Andrew Hall.

Part two in the series, Dames Of Classic Drama At The BBC airs on Sunday 8th November, also at 9.00pm.
