Summary, etc.:
This program provides a stimulating and controversial point of an independent study of the Authorship issue. Drawing on original 16th century documents and the Oxford Bible, this film makes a full investigation into the lives of both Edward de Vere and William Shakspere of Stratford-upon-Avon. Revealing the former as someone already revered as the best for comedies and the latter as a man who led a double life.
