Making a scene

6th April 2007 at 01:00
The National Theatre and BT have launched a new online interactive video guide with Sir Ian McKellen exploring one of his most famous roles, Richard III.

Visitors to can use a video format to interact directly with Sir Ian, to ask him questions almost as if they were talking to the actor in real life.

There is also a game, The Richard III Speechbuilder Challenge which involves putting quotes from the 'Now is the winter of our discontent'

speech in the right order against the clock.
