Still the best set as a whole. There are individual titles where others may
be stronger, but as a set it is a must.

We own it and it is used consistently. I believe it is worth the
expense, FYI it's available from Ambrose for $2500.00, it's also
available on DVD for $3000.00.

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,
