'Hamlet' revision podcast 3: the first scene

The first two podcasts in our annual Shakespeare revision series prior to the Leaving Certificate exams gathered together individual short talks on 10 characters in Hamlet - the first one was on 1) Fortinbras, 2) Horatio, 3) Laertes, 4) Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, 5) Polonius; the second on 7) Ophelia, 8) The Player King, 9) Osric, 10) The First Gravedigger.

This podcast, our 28th overall, deals with the first scene in the play, a scene which sets a mood of uncertainty, and one which prefigures central themes of the play, such as the disruption of the natural order and revenge.
