Ian McKellen ... Richard II
Timothy West ... Bolingbroke
Directed by Richard Cottrell and Toby Robertson for early (1970) BBC colour transmission.
This is about the youngest Ian McKellen (age 31 in '70) we can view. He did have some parts in movies released in 1969. McKellen's earliest film/TV credits are for some TV work in 1964 and '65 which I bet would be very difficult to locate and view now.
Ian McKellen also performed, on TV in early 70s, George Tesman in "Hedda Gabler" with Janet Suzman, a Hamlet, a one-man show on Keats, and starred in Marlowe's "Edward II". These are begging for DVD release!

Derek Jacobi ... Richard II
John Gielgud ... John of Gaunt

Fiona Shaw ... Richard II
Richard Bremmer ... Henry Bolingbroke
