A short travelogue tour of Shakespeare's Warwickshire intended for early adopters of the ATV Midlands television service. Beginning in quiet Hampton Lucy with its Boars Head pub it moves on through Aston Cantlow and then Henley in Arden with its mile long High Street of half-timbered buildings. The cameras finally visit Stratford upon Avon bustling with Shakespeare themed gift shops and tourists in search of an authentic literary history.
