This overview of George Bernard Shaw's life and work from the Famous Authors series starts in Dublin, introducing Shaw's family and his mother's voice teacher and influential family friend, George Vandeleur Lee. The film discusses Shaw's experience as a Protestant in Ireland. Eventually Shaw moved to England, where his mother had started giving singing lessons, and set off writing. There he made a name for himself as a controversial socialist spokesperson, a music and theater critic, and later as a dramatist. The program gives evidence of Shaw's famous wit and character.
