The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 8.0893. Wednesday, 4 September 1997.
Date: Wednesday, 3 Sep 1997 11:05:16 -0400
Subject: BBC Distribution
I've just talked to BBC headquarters in New York, and they say that at
the moment *none* of their titles are licensed for home video
distribution. They are, however, slowly negotiating for some titles to
be released next year, but the outcome appears to be tenuous. I am
planning to send them a list of requested titles in a few weeks. You
lists of any BBC titles you would like to purchase or have available.
The more people respond, the more weight the list will have, and the
more likely it will be that we can convince the powers-that-be that
Shakespeare multimedia is a viable and active market. Please indicate
if I can include your name on the list or not. Feel free to distribute
this request to your colleagues.
Thanks for your help!
