I would like to echo the notice of David Guillim as Hal/HV in the BBC
versions of the cycle.  While my views on the HENRIAD as a whole are
constantly in flux, Mr. Guillim's performances are seriously worth
checking out, esp. his HV.  First of all, he resembles the famous
portrait of HV right down to the haircut.  Also, he fills the room with
more quietly macho 'let's pray for them, kill them, then pray for them
again' vibes than Olivier or Branagh.  It's simply an interesting
portrayal.  I'm glad I sought it out for a viewing.

It's too bad about the BBC series. I was waiting until I had saved up
some money to buy several of the videos at once, and unfortunately I
didn't know I had enough time. I never thought in my wildest dreams that
I could own these videos (let alone on DVD for God's sake) but
unfortunately the decision has been made for me. :( Now I must wait
again. Perhaps forever.

John E. Perry  writes: "The same day I get Tanya's announcement that
there will be no more orders honored, I start seeing the descriptions of
Miller's production of ToS -- apparently the only one available that
makes any attempt to do justice to the story.

Now, how do I get hold of a copy, or at least get to see it?"

A few years ago, someone on the list mentioned a video store in
California that had certain tapes from the series available for $50. I
can't remember the name, but I bought ToS and HIV 1&2, and HV from them
with money my in-laws gave me for some occasion. (Alas, they did not at
that time carry RII, which I agree is superb). The name of the store is
not on my tapes, but maybe someone else remembers it, or it might be in
the archives.

Unfortunately, I was planning on spreading out my purchases from Tanya,
and had only ordered MM before the announcement. RII was to be the next
one.

If you're near New York, the Donnell library has almost a complete set
for viewing and lending (or at least did about a year ago), as I'm sure
do other libraries elsewhere.

Perhaps we should rename these companies:

Amb-Ron Video and Films for the Well-to-do!

Yesterday, I received my complete set of the BBC Shakespeare on DVD.
Thanks, Tanya.

I have refrained from commenting on the series so far, even though a
significant portion of my dissertation,
