Jeremy Irons Narrates ‘The British’ on SKY Atlantic

Jeremy Irons is one of the many celebrity narrators on the SKY Atlantic series The British, airing in the autumn of 2012.

From the SKY website:

Combining gripping drama, spectacular CGI and compelling commentary, The British is an ambitious and unmissable new series which tells the history of Britain and Ireland from the Roman invasion to the birth of TV and the Coronation of Elizabeth II in 1953.

Spanning two thousand years, the series uncovers the surprising stories of the unsung heroes as well as the well-known icons of history. Some of the UK’s most recognizable names from the worlds of entertainment, politics, sport, science and history – including Jeremy Irons, Dame Helen Mirren, Sir Terry Wogan, Jessie J, Russell Brand, Colin Jackson, Frank Lampard, Lord Robert Winston and Prof. Jeremy Black – share their unique insights on how thousands of years of British history have shaped the people and nation we are today.

Essex-born actor, comedian and writer Russell Brand said: “It’s nice to be able to reach back into the past and feel that you have an identity that’s built on an oceanic, rolling history” while Oscar® winning actress Dame Helen Mirren said of her national identity: “If you wanted to teach someone who knew absolutely nothing about the British people, it would be very good to guide them to Shakespeare – you could see the foolishness, the humour, the brutality; it’s all in almost every play.”

Sky is also running an educational initiative to support the series. Aiming to give pupils an enthralling insight into 2,000 years of the history of Great Britain, the initiative will target pupils from ages 7 – 14 with an educational plan tailored to the series.

As part of this campaign, Sky has produced free, flexible teaching and learning resources for ages 7-11 and 11-14, which will be specifically tailored towards each episode of the seven-part series. Click here to find out more about the educational resources for The British.

Helen Mirren, Jeremy Irons to read Shakespeare in Castleton Festival concert with Lorin Maazel

Lorin Maazel’s Castleton Festival seems to get classier every year. It’s also spreading more often beyond the enveloping beauty of the conductor’s estate in Rappahannock County, Virginia.

One of those stretches will find Maazel leading the Castelton Festival Orchestra — made up of top-notch young professionals — in “Music Inspired by Shakespeare” on June 30 at Strathmore.

In addition to “Romeo and Juliet”-inspired music by Tchaikovsky and Prokofiev and Mendelssohn’s Incidental Music to “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” there will be …

readings of Shakespeare by two of the most admired actors of our day: Dame Helen Mirren and Jeremy Irons.

Tickets are $25-$150 and will be available through Strathmore’s Web site or by phone, 301-581-5100. Proceeds support the Lorin and Dietlinde Maazel’s Châteauville Foundation, which supports the festival and provides fellowships for participants from this country and abroad.

The Virginia portion of the festival, which runs June 25-July 24, includes productions of operas by Puccini, Ravel and Weill, among others, and several concerts.
