If I remember correctly, Branagh's *Henry V* has been broadcast on
"premium" movie channels (cable television) in the USA (e.g., Cinemax;
Showtime), and is scheduled to be *re*-broadcast on one or the other
of these next month (October--*if* I remember correctly a quick flip
through the October cable guide which arrived last week but is at home
rather than at the office).

Branagh's ' Henry V' was shown on KCPT (Kansas City Public Television)
sometime last year during their fund drive.

In answer to the question about whether or not *Henry V* (1989) had
been aired on TV in the United States, the answer is yes -- twice on
PBS (in spring 1992 and this past spring), and also on The Disney
Channel, which somewhat oddly is the only American cable network to
have the rights to it.
 
A friend of mine who works at a PBS affiliate tells me that *Much Ado
About Nothing* is slated to turn up on PBS next spring, but I haven't
heard anything to confirm that.
 
*Much Ado* has also been released in the former Soviet Union this past
week (one print in Moscow).  Supposedly it is the first Western film to
be shown in theaters in first-run there in many years, if not the first
time ever.
