Comment:        RE: SHK 11.1321 The Shakespeare Channel

Although the idea of a channel dedicated solely to Shakespeare has its
limitations, I would think that something more along the line of a
"Renaissance Channel" could, indeed, have potential.  In many ways, it
could be more or less like The History Channel, but is more streamlined
toward the Renaissance in England.  At the same time, programs
documenting historical happenings throughout the world would be useful
in creating historical "perspective."

While including historical documentaries, film and television
adaptations, and even stage productions, there could also be
"investigative reports" that search out perhaps some of the "new and
avant-garde" approaches to teaching Shakespeare, Marlowe, etc.  And it's
not really a matter of appeal to educational background either.  Hell,
films such as Disney's "The Lion King" could be aired during prime
time.  By expanding the concept for a channel to the era known as the
Renaissance, the possibilities are (as trite as this may sound)
limitless.  Afterall, if there can be a cable channel dedicated solely
to animals (Animal Planet), why not a station dedicated to the
Renaissance?

In the end, though, it would take someone w/ a little more "umph" in the
public television sphere than I have.  Let me rephrase that: It would
take someone who has a HELL of a lot more "umph" than I have!

And why could we not develop funding to go into the regionals and tape
all this year's Hamlets and next year's Othellos?

Why can't I collect every Beatrice of my generation? Of my century?

More from Pervez:

> Classic movie: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly Quartos
> Classic drama serial: Great Emendations
> Rickie Lake Show: "All I Got From My Dead Husband Was A Second-Best Bed!"

And while we're at it, a Wheel of Fortune type show where contestants
fill in the missing word:

To be or not to __
Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou ____
Kiss me, ____

I'd like SELL a vowel !

> Feel free to join in the fun.

Will there be a place for those who don't see mindless cruelty as fun?
