The 2010 television version of Macbeth was broadcast on BBC Four on 12 December 2010. It was directed by Rupert Goold from his stage adaptation for the Chichester Festival Theatre in 2007. It starred Patrick Stewart in the title role, with Kate Fleetwood as Lady Macbeth. The film used Soviet-era Russian-type uniforms and weapons, or similar, including AK47s, but it keeps the original Scottish place names and personal names. It was filmed entirely on location at Welbeck Abbey. The three witches wear nurses' uniforms.
The film won a Peabody Award for 2010. In addition, Patrick Stewart was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries.
