We own it and it's used extensively by our customers. We recently purchased
the DVD version of that set and it is gaining popularity.

The BBC produced a series of Shakespeare plays in video back in
the early 1980's. The set is still available for $3700 from at
least one major vendor.

My question is: is this considered a definitive production? Is
it worth the expense? Has another producer done a more recent set
or one that might be less expensive?

Thanks for any assistance you can provide,
