LITERATURE ARTS

BBC Shakespeare Collection

BBC CLASSIC

REVIEWS

"This entire Shakespeare series ...is highly recommended for both school and public library literature collections." - Booklist

“For many collections, the BBC Shakespeare series was among the earliest and most significant acquisitions. At Berkeley and many other institutions, the series has come to be regarded as the canon against which other Shakespeare performances on film are measured and compared. How amazing it is, then, to rediscover this resource on DVD, with wonderfully enhanced visuals and sound, and with the con- venience of direct access to individual acts and segments. If the advent of DVD is the single most significant event in media librarianship in the past 30 years, the re- lease of the BBC Shakespeare on DVD is certainly a close second."

    Gary Handman, Director, Media Resources Center, UC Berkeley

PRODUCT INFORMATION The number one selling video series for libraries and Literature classes in this country.

This collection has revolutionized the teaching of Shakespeare as the preeminent production of every Shakespeare play written, performances featured in these productions would otherwise be seen only by the theater elite, in London or New York.

When the BBC first undertook this six-year project, it became the most ambitious undertaking ever attempted on film. This was the first time in the 400 years since they were written that all 37 plays would be preserved on tape. Produced by Cedric Messina and Dr. Jonathan Miller, it includes performances by Britain's most distin- guished theatrical talent; Sir John Gielgud, Ben Kingsley, Claire Bloom, Helen Mirren, Anthony Hopkins, Michael York, Alan Richman, John Cleese and Derek Jacobi.

This series is offered exclusively through Ambrose Video Publishing. Take this opportunity to complete your set, or to purchase the entire set.
