Interesting use of evidence in that program. If I remember correctly,
that's the one where they briefly mention an objection to Oxford's
candidacy: "He died in 1604, and at least one [!!!!????] of Shakespeare's
plays appeared after that date." Somebody drop an aught somewhere?
 
I saved it on tape because it shows Schoenbaum and Rowse in action
(unfortunately, not against each other -- THAT would be a treat); and
because the interviews with Ogburn reveal more about Ogburn than he
probably intended.
