I saw this video in England in December; and I agree it is generally very good. I especially liked Stewart doubling as Claudius and the Ghost. However, from about the Hamlet's departure for England the production makes too many cuts and even jumbles some scenes, making a number of points incoherent and confusing for anyone who doesn't know the play fairly well.
