The TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

SoHo 2, 7.30pm

This adap­ta­tion puts a mod­ern spin on Shake­speare’s work, set­ting it in 21st-cen­tury Lon­don. An­thony Hop­kins plays the king who seeks to di­vide his king­dom be­tween his daugh­ters (Emma Thomp­son, Emily Wat­son and Florence Pugh) but his ac­tions, and those of his daugh­ters,

spark a bloody war.
