Timidly emerging from a long lurkerdom to say ...

This series might be better remembered and more often discussed if those of us
who are not academics had access to it.  At least in the United States,
videotapes of the BBC Shakespeare Plays series are not readily available.
About 7 or 8 of the better-known plays can be found at good public libraries,
but the more obscure ones (which are by general report the better productions,
for the most part) are impossible to find.  If anyone knows where a
non-academic could find some of these videos, I'd be grateful for the
information; I'd love to see performances of some of the plays I've only read.
