A related question in a bottle. For those of you who have not heard about this
yet, Home Box Office has been showing half hour animated Shakespeare plays
made, I believe, in Russia. Since I am working on *Twelfth Night* on film, I
would like to get hold of a copy of the *Twelfth Night* if anyone had the fores
foresight to tape it. HBO informs me that they will not be showing TN again at
least until they finish the sequence. Since I was unable to sign up for
November and December I have missed MSND and TN. This month and next month they
are playing *Hamlet* and *Romeo and Juliet*. We will probably get HBO for these
two, so if anyone is interested, let me know.

Did anyone find a source for a video of the "Moonlighting" rendition of Shrew?
I would like to obtain one.

Luc,
 
    The latest edition of *Lingua Franca* has an article about a scholar of
film who encountered the very problem you describe your colleague having.  He
simply assumed that the "fair use" rule applied in his case, implicitly chal-
lenging the copyright owners to do anything about it.  So far, as reported in
*Lingua Franca*, he is getting away with it.  Sorry I don't have the precise
reference at hand, but let me know if you want it.
