''A cracking directorial debut by Eve Best'' (The Telegraph) guides this dark and powerful tragedy about ambition, murder, guilt and remorse. An effective and stirring score by Olly Fox accompanies double-Olivier Award winner Samantha Spiro as Lady Macbeth: ''a bundle of ambitious energy turning into a frenzied madwoman behind closed castle doors who finally collapses into a sorry wreck of herself as she goes completely mad'' (Sunday Express). ''Miraculously, the play worked its dark incantatory spell. The chief reason for this was the superb fresh-minted performances of Joseph Millson and Samantha Spiro as the Macbeths'' (The Telegraph). This production was captured in High Definition and surround sound at the Globe Theatre's faithful reconstruction on the banks of the Thames, which has been called ''a theatrical heaven'' by the Sunday Express.

The Torah seems to be encoded with major world events including anything that is important to Israel. The Hamas wars - rockets and terrorist attacks. Major events. The Economy, the Twin Towers, the BP Oil disaster, Terror Attacks, 2012 - all have been encoded. Director Richard Shaw interviews the world experts on the Codes, as well as explorers like L.A.

These artifacts are part and parcel of many early television programs.
