The Masterpiece Theatre web site indicates that the contemporary Othello
will be aired "Winter 2002." There is no specific air date, but blended
into the Merchant of Venice teaching guide, etc., is the indication that
more details will be forthcoming.

(Sorry if the spacing is off: The link will get you to a table version
that looks better)
