Subject:        An Age of Kings

I recently spent a surprisingly riveting day watching videos of An Age
of Kings, the 1960 BBC serial based on Shakespeare's History Plays. The
BBC has a new project called special interest videos which is aiming to
release a number of obscure and forgotten serials. There is an online
petition at
http://www.the-mausoleum-club.org.uk/BBC_Special_Interests/poll.htm and
An Age of Kings is listed. Although not an official BBC petition, the
BBC does link directly to it so if, like me, you would like to see this
series released, drop a line to the petition organiser. The homepage of
the Special Interest series is
