Subject:        Shakespeare on AUDIO

Forgive me if this is a FAQ, but here goes:

What Shakespeare plays are available on Compact Disc? I'm aware of Caedmon, and
of the Renaissance Theatre Company (Branagh et al.), but the only plays that
both companies have produced on CD are the 'favorites' -- Macbeth, King Lear,
etc.

I'm *hoping* that the BBC has bothered to put to audio the entire canon that
they did in the 1970's (love those versions, especially Twelfth Night). Ditto
for laserdisc, or NTSC videotape.

Anyways, anybody who has a clue about this, let me know.

Thanks,
Ed
