The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 10.2103 Tuesday, 30 November 1999.
Date: Monday, 29 Nov 1999 15:35:38 -0500
Subject: BBC Shakespeare Series
Good news on the BBC Shakespeare front! We have finally gotten through
to the right people at the BBC, and it looks like there is a Canadian
distributor who has the rights for the BBC Shakespeare series for home
distribution (i.e. cheaper than the $100 most of you are paying now,
which includes public performance rights), but they don't think there is
enough of a demand to merit producing them. Rest assured that we are
setting them straight about that. It might take a while longer, but it
looks like we will finally be making some headway early in the new year,
and I will be sure to keep you posted.
Please don't e-mail me with requests just yet. I will be sure to post
an announcement when we get closer to finalizing this arrangement, and
we will start pre-booking and taking requests at that time.
