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.
