Subject:        Sonogram/Ultrasound of Shakespeare's Tomb?

Dear list,

I've been lurking here a few weeks now and am so glad I found this
fantastic and informative list.  I especially thank those who posted on
the Marlowe authorship question (link to the _Guardian_ article), as
that's something I've always found fascinating and worthy of
investigation.

Now, I've a question for the esteemed list at large.  A few years ago I
watched a program on life of Shakespeare on a PBS station, and in this
program it was discussed that a sonogram/ultrasound of Shakespeare's
tomb in Stratford was planned.  I never heard a whisper more on the
subject, and it's been eating at me ever since.  Does anyone know if
such a thing ever did occur, and if so, were there any published
results?

Apologies for the vagueness of the query, as I no longer recall what the
program was.  It was a few years ago that I watched it, perhaps five or
more, and all I can recall of it was the mention of a projected sonogram
of the tomb.  If anyone can help me out with further information I'd
greatly appreciate it!

Thanks to all, in advance.
