Who was William Shakespeare?

Today's Claire Chats video was inspired by my recent visit to Stratford-upon-Avon with the Discover the Tudors tour. We visited Shakespeare's birthplace, New Place, Hall's Croft, Guild Hall and Shakespeare's Schoolroom, and Holy Trinity Church, and although I grew up in the area and studied Shakespeare and his works at school and university I learned so much about the man from our guide and speakers. I wanted to share some of that with you today.

Here are some YouTube videos of Michael Wood's "In Search of Shakespeare" documentary:
