Using the Internet Movie Database website, I find there were other 
productions on TV, none available currently on DVD or VHS.

Hugh,

This is not what you asked for, but you might wish to consult Roger 
Apfelbaum's <I>Shakespeare's Troilus and Cressida: Textual Problems and 
Performance Solutions</I>and Frances Shirley's edition of <I>Troilus and 
Cressida</I>in the Shakespeare in Production series.

As far as I am aware there are no film or television versions of 
'Troilus and Cressida' (apart from the BBC Television Shakespeare 
production) available on video and DVD in the United Kingdom. 
Interestingly Eddie Sammons book 'Shakespeare: a hundred years on film' 
has no entry for the play. There are video recordings of stage 
productions at the RSC and the National Theatre, filmed by a 
single-fixed camera, for research purposes but these productions have to 
be viewed by appointment on the company's premises.

I believe that 'Troilus and Cressida' has only been produced three times 
by the BBC (including the BBC Television Shakespeare production) This 
would seem to suggest that the play does not recommended itself to 
film-makers and television producers - reasons why not are interesting 
to consider.

Not that I've been able to locate, Hugh.  If there are others, I'd like 
to know about them, too.

There was word of a new Hollywood T&C in production a few years back, 
but it seems to have dropped off the map again.  Does anyone know what 
happened to it?  I'm wondering if they saw the Pacino Merchant box 
office and headed for the hills.
