Colleagues: I'm forwarding a forwarded message, since if anyone knows the
answer to the inquiry, it's probably someone on this list. I just checked my
*Shakespeare 1995* catalog from The Writing Company, but they don't seem to
have the Barton tapes.

To mix hunger with gratitude:  I'm still looking--and still nobody has
responded--for VHS of the BBC production PLAYING SHAKESPEARE with John Barton
and the Royal Shakespeare Co.  Is it available?

A colleague of mine recently mentioned that, about three years ago, he happened
to catch on PBS a few episodes of a British television series based on the life
of Shakespeare.  He recalls that Tim Curry played the Bard and that, on the
whole, it was very engaging, if not necessarily accurate in a historical sense.
 Did anyone see this series, or does anyone know how one might obtain videotape
copies of the episodes?
