A rather good, if obsessively traditional, production with very few textual omissions. The special effects are primitive, but then this was made in 1970, but the two leads - particularly Jayston - make this a very good television MACBETH, certainly better than the BBC 1983 version and the two recent films of stage prductions. If you're looking for acting, rather than spectacle, then you should like this. 
This is the 120-minute omnibus version (of the original serial, made for schools television, which was orioginally shown in five 25-mminute episodes.
