There is also a selection of later records which will be added over the coming months. The resource will embrace all productions to date by summer 2016. The site also offers information on the audiovisual and print sources that are known to exist for each of the productions: these include archival production files, contemporary newspaper reviews, scholarly writings, practitioners’ autobiographies and the recordings themselves (both those existing only in archives and those available commercially). Searches can be undertaken by title, series, channel, date, production company, theatre company, and theme (e.g. Africa, mental health, pantomine).
