Subject: BBC videos
First of all I apologize if my request will be slightly off-topic.
I'm searching for two BBC Shakespeare videos:
Hamlet ( sir Derek Jacobi)
Richard ll ( sir Derek Jacobi, Sir John Gielgud).
It's impossible to find them in Europe (I'm in Italy) at the moment. I
emailed BBC, London and they told me I had to ask their official
distributor, WHSmith. I emailed WHSmith and they answered me that the
whole Shakespeare range has been deleted!! Incredible but true....
There are no European websites which sell them on-line now.
On the contrary one or two US websites still have them, very expensive
and NTSC format, but they cannot send them outside the US! This is what
I've been told.
I have been searching for a long time. Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you very much for listening.
