Subject:        PBS Masterpiece Theatre M of V Teaching Guide

I ordered one (they're free) for M of V and the upcoming Othello.  The
Othello is an adaptation without the language set in contemporary
London.  In what might be called "The C-O-mish,"  John Othello is a
Police Commissioner, his wife Dessie Brabant is a journalist, etc.
From the stills, looks like it is a movie (much like the recent O)
rather than a televised recording of a studio / theater production (like
the Nunn M of V).  The recommended (very short) reading list is
unfortunate.  Douglas Brode's execrable Shakespeare in the Movies is on
the list; James Shapioro's excellent Shakespeare and the Jews is not.
