Bernice,

It's avaiable from FILMS FOR THE HUMANITIES.  I think it's about $90.
They take films from the UK, transcribe them to NTSC and charge a lot
more then if we were in England.  But, available.

The McKellen-Dench performance is available for "human" prices only in
PAL format.  However, if the video is for instructional purposes I
believe most good university libraries will convert a PAL to NSTC (I
believe that is the term for US format) for the cost of the tape.  They
retain the original for copyright reasons.  We got ours for L 10.95 and
got it converted for $5.00.  This certainly beats the US rip off
companies which seem to exist to sell things to people who are not using
personal budgets.

Thanks to all the many people who responded to my request for info about
the availability of the Nunn/McKellen/Dench *Macbeth*. Does anyone know
if there is a VCR available-at a reasonable price-that can play British
tapes?  Joanna Walen points out, "If you can run the British video
system, the RSC has the tape available for #10.99, or about $18-19."

That's considerably less than the prices quoted from FFH and the Writing
Co.

Thanks again,
Bernice W. Kliman
