John Barton's book `Playing Shakespeare' is available online through 
www.amazon.co.uk.

The nine-part series which the book supports was produced by London 
Weekend Television and first broadcast on the UK's Channel 4 in 1984. 
The tapes have been out of distribution for many years but copies can be 
consulted in archives, for example the Folger Shakespeare Library or the 
British Film Institute National Archive.

I know of no one source for the whole package.

I bought mine from the Poor Yorick shop in Canada. They are released by 
the Films for the Humanities establishment which is based in America and 
can be ordered from there. It took me years to track down a source, so I 
hope this helps you get to them more quickly! They are pure gold!

Best,
Jan Pick
