If people sometimes had a look at my webpages (in this case:
[http://www.unibas.ch/shine/linkstoromtempest.html#film versions]) there
would be no problem. And I could always keep those pages up to date,
because everybody would tell me about new and interesting web sites. But
nobody seems to notice them or me or anything. I am Eeyore reborn, I
guess.

Here we go. LOC (=lies on the floor crying).

Another way to find such things out: [http://us.imdb.com/].

The actual information (as taken from:
[http://www.unibas.ch/shine/linkstoromtempest.html#film versions] would
be:

Taymor, Julie. (dir.) The Tempest (USA, 1986)
[http://us.imdb.com/Title?0125548]

There was a PBS piece on the making of the Taymor "Tempest". You should
be able to view it by making arrangements with a local affiliate, if the
piece wasn't released as a video.

Taymor directed a stage production of THE TEMPEST for Theatre for a New
City that became the subject of a PBS "Behind the Scenes" half-hour
broadcast (hosted by showmen/magicians, Penn and Teller).  The show,
brief and fragmented as it is, reveals some of Taymor's astute and
imaginative interpretive choices, featuring bits of commentary mixed
with shots of scene fragments from the production. Details shown of the
opening storm, the representation of Caliban and Ariel, make it well
worth the whistle.  Now available on videotape, "Behind the Scenes with
Julie Taymor"  can be purchased through amazon.com ($13.99) or from
First Run Features ($14.95): http://www.firstrunfeatures.com
