Subject: 	BBC World Service King Lear

This may be of interest - the various World Service bands are available 
from the BBC website, and of course there will be an easy opportunity to 
listen directly on line or later (I imagine) through the very good BBC 
listen again facility.

World Drama: King Lear

http://er.bsysmail.com/go.asp?/bBBC001/qI4C133/xU56ES

A special BBC World Service production of William Shakespeare's tragedy 
King Lear, recorded at the Globe Theatre in London earlier this year, 
marks the 400th anniversary of the first performance of the play. The 
all-star cast includes Philip Madoc as Lear, Fiona Shaw as Goneril, 
Deborah Findlay as Regan and Andrew Sachs as the Fool.
