Subject:        Pronunciation of "th"

Dear SHAKSPERians,

I am very puzzled about something that I "knew" as a graduate- school
commonplace, the pronunciation of "th" as an interdental stop rather than an
interdental fricative in words such as "Moth," the character in _LLL_, or
"Nothing," which leads to such nice ambiguities in _Much Ado_.  Is it *always*
the case that "th" is a stop rather than a fricative?  Should one pronounce
"thing" as if it were "ting"?

Hanging by a thorn (or is that "torn"?),

Subject:        Video of Duchess of Malfi

Dear SHAKSPERians,

Over a decade ago I remember seeing a BBC (I think) production of _Duchess of
Malfi_ on PBS.  This was in the Boston area, and the station was WGBH.  I've
tried to find a video of the film, but it's listed nowhere, and PBS says they
know nothing about it. Does anyone know if there is such a video (was I
hallucinating all those years ago?) and whether it's available at all in the
US?

Thanks,
