I just purchased the BBC's MEASURE FOR MEASURE through The Writing Co in
Culver City, California. They have just about everything Shakespeare you
might imagine. It is distributed by Ambrose Video, 1290 Ave of the
Americas, Suite 2245, NY, NY 10104

The 1994 BBC *Measure for Measure* has never been available on video in
the US or the UK. More's the pity - it was a brilliant piece of work, in
many respects the finest television Shakespeare I have ever seen. Some
videos copies are circulating, taken off-air from its first and only
broadcast in the UK, but if there were any way of persuading the BBC to
release it again - or even just to screen it again - there are many
Shakespeareans who would be delighted.

Subject:        RSC video inquiry

I'm looking for information about a supposed Royal Shakespeare Company
production for television (or so I presume) called "Great Performances",
which featured excerpts from various RSC productions.  The original
performance was in 1995 or thereabouts.  Does anyone actually own a
(purchased) copy of this show?  I would be most grateful for exact info
- expecially the date, production company and where it was obtained.

Please respond direct to

town on Saturday, and haven't been able to turn anything up yet.

Many thanks,
Tanya Gough
