Tom Cartelli recalled British TV versions of "Duchess of Malfi" and
"Edward II" from the 70s. If they are the same versions I remember, they
were shown on American television as part of the PBS "Classic Theatre"
series. (T. P. McKenna was in the cast of "Duchess.") The series came
with a companion volume that included texts and commentary for all of
the plays. I have long wanted to see both again.
