Does anyone know if Derek Jacobi's Richard II is available on video?  I would
love to see it and don't know where to begin.

There is a version of Marlowe's *Edward II* directed by Derek Jarman currently
available on videotape.  Although I haven't seen it, *Sight and Sound* devoted
a number of pages to the film when it was originally released in Britain, and
as I remember the articles, they received the piece well.

*The Tempest* is available in a variety of treatments.  There's a Jarman
production of it, which isn't, so far as I can tell, available on video;
there's a short animated version, part of *Shakespeare:  The Animated Tales*;
John Cassavetes directed the lovely *Tempest* which is a 1982 updating of the
story, set on a Greek island.  I don't think it's available any more, but many
video rental places still stock it.
