Dame Helen Mirren & Russell Brand Delve Into Britain's History For New Tv Show
The trio, along with several other celebrities, will discuss the story of Great Britain and Ireland in new documentary The British, starting with the Roman invasion.
Mirren will tackle the topic of William Shakespeare, and she insists The Bard's work is the perfect way of explaining what it means to be British.
She says, "If you wanted to teach someone who knew absolutely nothing about the British people, it would be very good to guide them to Shakespeare.
"You could see the foolishness, the humour, the brutality - it's all in almost every play."
The series will air in the U.K. in September (12).
