I haven't seen the full video text of Macbeth with McKellen and Dench
anywhere, although it may be available in PAL format.  However, we do
stock a fantastic CD-ROM in the Voyager series, which includes the full
text, accompanied by the complete audio from the RSC production Ms.
Kilman mentions.  The package is a lovely resource - the text is glossed
with "hot" terminology (click on the phrases and a definition appears);
click anywhere on the text and the audio picks up immediately at that
point (or indicates that the chosen section was cut from the
production); click on the character list and get a complete list which
includes the total number of lines spoken in the play and an index of
first lines; there are introductory essays, film clips from Orson
Welles, Polanski and Kurosawa, a picture gallery, maps of Scotland, and
two scenes presented as "Karaoke Shakespeare," wherein you can chose the
part of Macbeth or Lady Macbeth and read the text with either McKellen
or Dench.  I never get tired of it.  Suggested list price is over $65
Canadian.  We sell it through our website for $49.99 Canadian plus
shipping.

To Bernice Kliman: The 1979 RSC/Trevor Nunn production of *Macbeth* to
which you refer is available from The Writing Company (800-421-4246;
800-944-5432; order # FHM214V-K7; 2 VHS vc's; $149).  Because our campus
library has it in its holdings, I've been able to require it as
outside-class viewing in my undergrad S tragedies course since 1991 with
considerable success.  It's quite provocative.

Best,
Lynn

Bernice Kliman asks about the wonderful Judy Dench, Ian McKellan Macbeth
from the RSC directed by Trevor Nunn ?? It is available from  Thames
International, Academy Television, 104 Kirkstall Road, Leeds, LS3 1JS
Phone 0532 461528.

It is the best Macbeth on video I know although it does lack the
atmosphere of the original production in The Other Place, the camera
work is sensitive to the fell of the production.

Regards,
Scott Crozier

In the 1997 Writing Company (1-800-421-4246; 
 This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
 ;
http://WritingCo.com/Shakespeare) catalog the '79 Trevor Nunn RCS
production with McKellen and Dench is listed at $149.

The '96 Films for the Humanities catalog lists the same video for
$89.95. They can be reached at 1-800-257-5126.

If you can run the British video system, the RSC has the tape available
