Branagh's Henry V came out on video in VHS format five weeks
ago.

Regarding the availability of Branagh's *Henry V*, I have seen it for rental in
a large video store chain here in South Florida.  I called them just now, and
the clerk says that at the moment they don't have copies for sale, but that
they could order it.  (Apparently in general they can be bought as soon as they
become available for rental.)  He said the cost would be high, about US$ 90.

1991-2 RSC Season

Subject:  RSC details
 
15 January 1991
 
     The press conference at which the Royal Shakespeare
Company announces the new Stratford season to start in
the spring is scheduled for tomorrow (Wednesday) as I
understand.  This will be the first season under the new
directorship of Adrian Noble.  But a friend has
telephoned to say that this morning's Guardian newspaper
has published some details:
 
       In the Main House plans seem to be to present
       Romeo, Julius Caesar, Twelfth Night and 1 & 2
       Henry 4.  The schedule for the Swan is expected to
       include three Theban Plays by Sophocles,
       Shadwell's The Virtuoso, Jonson's Alchemist, and
       Shakespeare's Two Gentlemen of Verona.  No word
       that I know of yet on the rebuilt Other Place.
 
     If there are corrections to this, I will try to
supply them.  The past season was generally considered a
success but I do not know exactly what is to happen to
the London side of the RSC at the Barbican which, as many
readers will know, has had to go dark this winter because
of government cuts for the first time since the company
moved there.
 
                                   Sincerely,
                                   Stephen Miller

I am reaching back a number of years and so I can not give you the crystalline
information you need, but it may provide a clue which you can use.
 
The New York City Shakespeare Festival produced a performance of Twelfth Night
in Central Park which was filmed, I believe, by New York Public Television.
William Hurt played Oberon.
 
Not much I admit, but possibly helpful.

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.

Subject: Video Twelfth Night
 
 
I am working on a seminar paper for SAA (and a book chapter) addressing
video/film editions of Twelfth Night. I'd appreciate any info SHAKSPERians
can offer about what versions are available, and if possible where. I am
operating more or less on the assumption that the BBC production is the
only one which is usually available to students, but I am most interested
in any others you have heard of. Thanks.
