Comment:        Re: SHK 10.0368 Q: Video Discs

Shakespeare on videodisc off the top of my head (and in random order):

Twelfth Night (dir. Trevor Nunn)

Hamlet (dir. Olivier; dir. Zefferelli; dir. Branagh)

Richard III (dir. Olivier; dir. Loncraine <sp?>)

Othello (the most recent one, with Lawrence Fishburne)

Romeo and Juliet (dir. Zefferelli; dir. Lurhman)

Henry V (dir. Olivier; dir. Branagh)

Much Ado About Nothing (dir. Branagh)

Ran (dir. Kurasawa)

Throne of Blood (dir. Kurasawa)

The Internet Movie Database lists videodisc versions if they're
available (or have ever been available -- some are out of print).

I was under the impression the laser video disks are an obsolete
technology and the DVD would probably be the technology to replace laser
disks. Am I incorrect in my assumption?
