Further to two dying strains on SHAKSPER, the June 2003 issue of BBC
History Magazine has an article by historian and broadcaster Michael
Wood on John Shakespeare's part in the (reluctant) removal of
Stratford's catholic guild chapel religious imagery in 1563 (lecture at
the Shakespeare Centre 7 June) and young Emma Smith of Hertford
continues to establish herself as a leading Harry 5 buff with an article
pointing to the continued relevance of the play in a changing world and
how the changing world manipulates the play. (I'd forgotten Bogdanov's
"F**k the Frogs" and "Gotcha" posters in his production. My how we
laughed !). And it sounded like Nicholas Hytner this morning on the
wireless discussing his production at the National, and the contrast
between the play's rhetoric and its events.  I notice that the
advertising tag line - casting an eye to Adrian Lester I presume - is
TLN 1991-3. Silence so far from the PC gang on this.
