Tanya Gough is perhaps thinking of the Tempest as envisioned as a Civil
War story, set in the bayou.  Caliban and Ariel are both present, but
Ariel is an escaped slave figure.

Are you thinking of the Peter Fonda t.v. version?  Ariel is a black
slave, but Caliban is a white trash river rat.

It was on NBC.

You might be thinking of the 1998 TV movie "The Tempest", starring Peter
Fonda as Guideon Prosper (= Prospero), John Glover as Anthony Prosper
(=Antonio), Katherine Heigl as Miranda Prosper, and Harold Perrineau Jr.
as the slave Ariel (conflating Ariel and Caliban).  It's set not in the
Everglades, but in the Mississippi Bayou at the time of the Civil War.

Here's its Internet Movie Database page:

I think it is a TV film with Peter Fonda called  _The Tempest_.  It is
set in the bayous, not the Everglades.  Check imdb.com for information.

Could this be the 1998 TV production "The Tempest"?  Harold Perrineau
plays Ariel, and there's an Old Ariel, but no Caliban is listed, unless
"Gator Man" serves as such.

If this is the one I'm thinking of, it's called "The Tempest" It
features Peter Fonda as Guideon Prospero. It was a made-for-tv movie.
The IMDB listing for it can be found at:
http://us.imdb.com/Title?0178928

And it's available on vhs.

It's called _The Tempest_, surprisingly enough, and is set in the Bayou
during the American Civil War.  Date is 1998; dir. is Jack Bender; and
the leading players Peter Fonda, John Glover, and Harold Perrineau.  It
is, I'm afraid, pretty bad.  The conflation of Ariel and Caliban is
because the resulting character has an uplifting lesson to teach us
about race relations.

Comment:        Re: SHK 12.2003 Everglades Tempest

Tanya Gough asked about a Tempest spin-off set in the Everglades. From
her description, it seems as if she is thinking of The Tempest, dir.
Jack Bender, starring Peter Fonda, John Glover, Harald Perinneau Jr.,
John Pyper Ferguson, Katherine Heigl and Eddie Mills (1999). The setting
is not the Everglades, however, but some bayous near the Mississippi, in
the period of the American Civil War. My colleague Ton Hoenselaars
reviewed the film in the latest issue of *FOLIO,* the journal of the
Shakespeare Society of the Low Countries, under the title "Gone with The
Tempest."

Tanya asked about a version of the Tempest set in the Everglades.

I wonder if she's referring to the NBC production of "The Tempest,"
starring Peter Fonda as a Prospero character.  I never saw it myself,
but it sounds as if that might be the production to which she is
referring.
