Subject:      Recorded versions of *Twelfth Night*
 
Regarding Laurie Osborn's query about recorded versions of *Twelfth Night*:
 
The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation taped a Stratford Festival version
of *Twelfth Night* a couple of years ago.  The CBC often makes these kinds
of things available to schools.  You can find out whether they did in this
case by writing to their head office:
 
    Canadian Broadcasting Corporation,
    P.O. Box 500, Station A,
    Toronto, Ontario, Canada,
    M5W 1E6.
 
(All patriotic Canadians know this address by heart, of course)

Subject:      CBC Videotapes of Shakespeare
 
 
I thought I'd save SHAKSPEReans the trouble of writing to the CBC right
here in Toronto by giving CBC Enterprises (the merchandising division)
a quick telephone call.
 
Their agent confirmed that, yes, the CBC did videotape a Stratford, Ontario
production of *Twelfth Night*, in 1985.  This tape was "withdrawn", however,
about a year ago and is no longer available through CBC.  You might be able
to find copies of it in University or Public libraries, however.
 
While I had them on the line, I asked whether CBC had any other Shakespearean
offerings, or was planning to release any of the Stratford performances
broadcast on CBC recently.  (Last Christmas it was the Stratford *Taming
of the Shrew*; this past Christmas it was *The Comedy of Errors*.)  The
answer was a resounding no -- so fortunately I taped those myself as they
were broadcast.
 
While we're on the subject of videocassettes and their availability: I may
soon join the Columbia Video Club in order to get a copy of Zeffirelli's
*Romeo & Juliet* (and six other tapes) for 45 cents (plus, naturally,
heavy postage and handling fees).  I'm still waiting for the release of
Kenneth Branagh's *Henry V* on VHS, which I sincerely hope will occur --
has anyone any idea?
 
A number of SHAKSPEReans have expressed an interest in compiling a list of
available videotapes of Shakespeare -- does anyone know of any sources
and what they might stock?
 
Thanks in advance.
                                                   Ken Steele
