Does anyone on the SHAKSPER list know who (if anyone) owns the home video
rights to the PLAYING SHAKESPEARE series by John Barton and the RSC?  I
would like to buy or rent these videos for my own use. They are available
from Films for the Humanities, but since the price includes public
performance rights, it is far beyond my limited grad school resources
(nearly $1000 for the set).  I contacted the BBC but no one there seemed to
know anything about the videos.
 
I would be most grateful if anyone can tell me where I might obtain copies
of these tapes at a reasonable price without violating too many
international copyright laws.  Please respond on the list or directly to me
at the address below.
 
Thanks.
Mark Webster

Does anyone have any good ideas on how to teach Macbeth to a group of fourteen
year olds? They will be looking at character, themes, etc. Does anyone have any
interesting insights into Macbeth that I have not thought of? I am a P.G.C.E.
student, at the University of Hertfordshire, near London, and am 'doing'
Macbeth on my teaching practice. I am looking at the theme of the supernatural,
Kingship and what that meant in Shakespeare's time, sleep, nature V chaos, role
reversal .....anything else?
 
        Thanks in advance.....
                        ............Jennie.
