Subject: More on "In Search of Shakespeare"
While some PBS stations have apparently jumped the gun, others will be
showing the first part of the four-part "In Search of Shakespeare" Wed.,
Feb. 4. Show and episode descriptions are available at the web page:
Michael Wood will be live online at the Washington Post on Thurs., Feb.
5, time TBA. Info will be on web page:
The episodes are entitled A Time of Revolution, The Lost Years, The Duty
of Poets, and For All Time. The producer, Rebecca Dobbs, makes an
interesting denial: "We are not following the current style of
historical TV shows that use re-enactments and tableaux. There is no one
dressed up as Will Shakespeare-or Queen Elizabeth! Instead we asked the
Royal Shakespeare Company to give us a group of Britain's best young
actors and actresses, to go on the road and play in the places where his
company played." Eg, Leicester Guildhall, a surviving inn yard in
Gloucester, Hampton Court Palace.
