Subject:        Q: 1994 BBC MM

I have another question for the group.  I have been trying to order for
our library a copy of the 1994 BBC production of *Measure for Measure*
directed by David Thacker.  The video version was reviewed by Herb
Coursen in the Summer 1997 issue of *Shakespeare Bulletin*, but the
director of our media collection has been unable to locate a distributor
for it.  I would need to order it in VHS format so that I can play it in
the US, but I'm not sure that it has been released in this country.
Does anyone out there have more information?

I will be in London during the first week of August. I already have
reservations for several shows at the Globe. Does anyone know of any
decent fringe theater going on at the time, and how to make
reservations? The stuff at the National seems pretty thin during this
time, and I mostly have despaired of the West End.

Thanks in advance,
Harvey Roy Greenberg, MD

Dear Colleagues,

I'm writing a novel set in 1994, and I'm badly in need of help. In
particular I'm looking for contemporary and preferably eyewitness
accounts of any or all of the following:

        Marshalsea Prison
        Silversmiths and their work
        The Cotswold Olympics
        Market day in a provincial town or city
        The road(s) between Stratford and London
        Carters and drovers

If anyone knows of any sources I could follow up, I'd be very grateful
indeed.

Thanks in anticipation.

Yours,
Tim Brookes
