Project Background

The British Universities Film & Video Council (BUFVC) has been involved in the collection and dissemination of information on audio-visual Shakespeare for many years. It has gathered relevant information from distributors’ catalogues, reviews, publicity literature, electronic programme guides, online services and direct contact with producers and owners. It has published three audio-visual Shakespeare catalogues: Shakespeare: A list of audio-visual materials available in the UK (1986, edited by Olwen Terris); a second edition under this title (1987, ed. Olwen Terris), and, thirdly, As You Like It: AudioVisual Shakespeare (1992, edited by Cathy Grant).
