...the John Barton Royal Shakespeare Company's BBC version of "Playing Shakespeare".

There is one episode featuring David Suchet and Patrick Stewart showing their different interpretations of Shylock. Stewart does one scene, then Suchet does the same scene, back and forth.

It's fucking amazing, and it hits on exactly what you're talking about.

I was lucky enough to have a teacher that owned the series on VHS and let me watch them. I haven't been able to find it on my own, though. Not that I've really tried terribly hard, but it was some great stuff.

There's a book that's basically just an abridged transcript, if that floats your boat, too.
