BBC, the acclaimed British broadcast network, has released a trailer to commemorate their 80th anniversary of drama TV show making. Or, as they put it, ‘a lifetime of Original British Drama.’

The trailer features Benedict Cumberbatch reading Shakespeare’s monologue All the World’s a Stage over images of BBC shows. The video is also ‘interactive,’ meaning that every time a show’s title comes on the screen you can click on it and it will take you to a special trailer/clip from said drama show.

Featured in the trailer are first glimpses of JK Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy; Judi Dench/Dustin Hoffman-starrer Esio Trot; and Wolf Hall with Steven Spielberg’s BFG Mark Rylance and Homeland‘s Damien Lewis, among others.
