H.R. Greenberg asks, "if there any extensive audios or videos available
of Sir John Gielgud in major Shakespearean roles."

I saw an audio cassette at Borders the other day of readings by Sir John
Gielgud of selected sonnets.  Unfortunately, I didn't make note of the
title or company, but I imagine it's available through most large
book/music outlets.

I'm a bit surprised in the lists of Guilgud/Shakespeare videos available
that no-one has yet to mention Greewaway's <Prospero's Books>.

More Gielgud on film.  Sir John appears as Henry IV in Welles's *Chimes
at Midnight* and as Clarence in Olivier's *Richard III*.  If you'd like
to see him in a non-Shakespearean classical role, check out his fine
performance as Tiresias to Michael Pennington's Oedipus.

The BBC version of R2 should fulfil both categories as it has both
Jacobi and Gielgud in it.  To my mind it is quite a good production for
a BBC Shakespeare.

BBC Radio has an easy to find CD and a cassette version of the
Renaissance Theater Company's 1993 first-rate audio KING LEAR, with
Gielgud as Lear, Judi Dench as Goneril, Eileen Atkins as Regan, Branagh
as Edmond, Emma Thompson as Cordelia, Jacobi as France, Bob Hoskins as
Oswald, and Keith Mitchell as Kent. Patrick Doyle's music adds to the
production. It's out in the U.S. from Bantam/Doubleday/Dell Audio
Publishing.

I missed the earlier exchanges, but Geilgud plays Clarence in Olivier's
R3, in case that wasn't mentioned.
