Apologies for cross posting

SHAKESPEARE ON FILM, TELEVISION AND RADIO
www.bufvc.ac.uk/shakespeare

The BUFVC offers two new resources for those studying audiovisual 
Shakespeare: an international database encompassing over 6,000 
individual media items relating to Shakespeare and his work and a new 
book dedicated to him published in the BUFVC's Researcher's Guide series.

An International Database
Currently in beta test phase, with its formal launch scheduled for the 
Summer, this website (www.bufvc.ac.uk/shakespeare) includes a database 
of over 6,400 records relating to Shakespeare on film, television, radio 
and the web. It can be searched by play title or type, character (both 
canonical and not), period, individuals, production companies and much 
more besides. Audio productions, especially those made for radio, have 
been made a key priority of the project with details of several hundred, 
including international productions, available.

Shakespeare on Film, Television and Radio: The Researcher's Guide
Combining new research, archival documents and detailed listings on 
international resources, this Guide is a must for those interested in 
Shakespeare and the media.

Everything about the how as well as the why of studying audiovisual 
Shakespeare is included, from silent cinema to the multiplex, and from 
cat's whiskers to YouTube. The Guide will become a standard text for 
anyone interested in the most filmed and the most widely broadcast of 
all writers.

Contributors to the book include Michael Anderegg, Dr Judith Buchanan, 
Professor Richard Burt, Dr Christie Carson, Dr Susanne Greenhalgh, Mike 
Flood Page, Professor Roberta Pearson, and Professor Kenneth S. Rothwell.
