The pleasure of clean whips I'd wear as rubies...

Shakespeare The BBC finally have a page up listing their screenings for the upcoming Shakespeare season. There's some really excellent stuff here, and I am excited but really -- it doesn't seem as good as I remember The Bard On The Box season being ten years ago. It's just that the usual suspects are there and my favourite play, Measure For Measure is cruelly ignored again. That said there is a new radio production of Pericles which another of the underrateds and perhaps they'll sneak in other films about the schedules which don't appear here...
Update Actually, take it back. Afternoon Reading 3.30-3.45pm Radio 4. Thursday 18 November -- Measure for Measure from 'Promos and Cassandra' by George Whetstone. Read by Claire Skinner.
