First, congratulations to Tonya Gough for getting the BBC to release the
Shakespeare series.

I'm assuming the descriptions of the plays are supplied by the BBC
itself. So I'm going to blame it for this synopsis of King John:

> King John
>
> In this story of illegitimacy, a bastard son attempts to overthrow the
> King, who has himself manipulated his way to the throne.  Stars Claire
> Bloom, Mary Morris. 120 minutes.

Perhaps this is by P.D.Q. Shakespeare? Because 'tisn't much like Wm's
play often known as King John.

Tanya Gough presented:

> together by fate.  Costuming, direction and, of course, music are
> beautifully handled. Stars Roger Daltrey (of the Who), Michael Kitchen
> and Cyril Cusack.  l09 minutes.

Wow! I am an absolute sucker for the Who!!! Has anyone seen this video?
How good or bad is Roger Daltrey as an actor?
