Many thanks to everyone who has submitted requests for BBC product to
our petition.  The list is substantial now, and I don't think the BBC
will be able to dismiss our plea.

For those of you new to the list or back from summer holidays, we are
running a petition to encourage the BBC to release their Shakespeare
titles for home distribution at a more reasonable price (the lowest
going rate is currently about $100 US).  This petition does not reflect
a preference for the BBC versions over other versions, but we have to
start somewhere, and this seemed as good a place as any.  Please,
please, please, send your BBC wish list, or just your name and a note
saying you would like to be added to the list, to <

 >.  I
will be meeting with the BBC in New York next month to hand over the
list and to add my own voice to the cause, so there is still time to
join us.  This petition is open to anyone interested in making these
titles more accessible to the public, so tell your friends, family, and
colleagues to send us a note, too.

The Fall edition of the Poor Yorick Shakespeare Multimedia Catalog is up
and running on the net.  Visit us at <http://granite.cyg.net/~yorick>,
or write to me <

Many thanks for all your support.

Cornerstone Theatre toured the country with an updated winter's Tale a
few years back. Unfortunately, I was out of the country and missed it.
Dave Crosby, who is on the list can provide details.
