The video series in question was called "Classic Theatre." The playtexts
appeared in an anthology around the same time as the series on PBS.
Unfortunately I don't remember much more than that, except that the production
of "Duchess of Malfi" was absorbing and well-done.

In response to Al's question (sorry, I deleted the original message; otherwise
I would have e-mailed directly). I saw that video a year ago in a class at the
University of British Columbia. I will e-mail the professor, as he obviously
found a way to get a copy of that tape. Please send your e-mail address along
to me.

Just adding to Georgiana Ziegler's reply to Al Cacicedo: There certainly was a
collected volume for this series, a big hardback I believe, perhaps even meant
to be a textbook.  It also seems to me that there was an earlier discussion of
the "Duchess" on SHAKSPER, maybe a year ago, and one posting, I think, had
fuller information.  (There is also the Caedmon recording, which I have on
LP--has that been reissued on cassette?)  Surely some libraries have the
volume?

Emory owns that production of _Duchess of Malfi_ done in the '70s.
Unfortunately, when we bought for audio-visual collections in was on the old
3/4 inch tape, and I don't think it has been released on VHS.  I still use it
occasionally in my classes.  If anyone would like< I can check the information
on the tape and let you all know.

News of another - which was on kine and is now on video, deposited with the
National Archives of Canada. Produced for CBC in early 60s. Producer Mario
Prizek. Francis Hyland was the Duchess, Doug Rain was Bosola and most of the
Stratford company of that time is in it. There are pictures and a brief account
of the production in my * Turn Up the Contrast: CBC TV drama since 1952* UBC
Press 1987. I do not have a personal copy but saw it on kine I have been
sayingfor some time that there would be a market for this on video. If enough
of the people on this list e-mailed  me I might [in april or May] be able  to
explore such a possibility with the CBC - although after my next book out in
May they maynot be speaking to me. Alternatively - everyone interested write to
Jim Byrd Vice President  of CBC Television , Box 500 Station A Toronto , M5W
1E6 - and point out the international market for this. It's black and white,
edited [ of course] and, I think, brilliant,
