[Trailer interactif] “A lifetime of Original British Drama” (BBC)

Le mois dernier la BBC a sorti un trailer spécial intitulé A lifetime of Original British Drama. On y voit Benedict Cumberbatch déclamer le monologue de Jaques au début de As you like it de William Shakespeare, chaque réplique étant illustrée par des extraits des créations originales de la BBC, passées, présentes et futures.


Il y a quelques jours, la BBC a remis ce trailer en ligne, mais en version interactive cette fois ! Il est désormais possible de cliquer sur le nom de certaines productions pour avoir accès à des clips exclusifs.

On peut ainsi avoir un premier extrait d’Aidan Turner dans Poldark et Russell Tovey dans Banished, ainsi que des extraits des adaptations de Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell de Susanna Clarke, Wolf Hall d’Hilary Mantell ou encore The Casual Vacancy de J.K. Rowling – entre beaucoup d’autres.

A regarder – et écouter ! – sans modération.

Je ne résiste pas à vous mettre le monologue…

All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages. At first, the infant,
Mewling and puking in the nurse’s arms.
Then the whining schoolboy, with his satchel
And shining morning face, creeping like snail
Unwillingly to school. And then the lover,
Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad
Made to his mistress’ eyebrow. Then a soldier,
Full of strange oaths and bearded like the pard,
Jealous in honor, sudden and quick in quarrel,
Seeking the bubble reputation
Even in the cannon’s mouth. And then the justice,
In fair round belly with good capon lined,
With eyes severe and beard of formal cut,
Full of wise saws and modern instances;
And so he plays his part. The sixth age shifts
Into the lean and slippered pantaloon,
With spectacles on nose and pouch on side;
His youthful hose, well saved, a world too wide
For his shrunk shank, and his big manly voice,
Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all,
That ends this strange eventful history,
Is second childishness and mere oblivion,
Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything
