Shakespeare Productions Online

This is a public service. So much rubbish, there is. Here's something, um, good -- with, frankly, a very serious scholarly intention. Some of this would be available from local libraries, even if it's interlibrary loan. No doubt NetFlix / Amazon / etc would be useful. I've linked mostly to professional productions, with no attempt at reviewing them -- with a few (!) exceptions. A few amateur efforts are included for the POV, when only one professional production is available -- major qualification is that the sound is not very bad. The 'VK dot com' links can be viewed via a facebook signup. Just for the history of it, I’ve included non-snippet silent films. There's more available, but I'll add as I please.
Links go dead, so there's that. Maximilian Schell's dubbed Hamlet, for example, from German TV -- although you'll be delighted with what IS available! On the other hand, Polanski's "Macbeth" is on a Georgian server -- former USSR. Of the BBC series from the 70s and 80s, only a few are on youtube; a South Korean server has all of them. I prefer YT because you can play at faster speed, which, frankly, works even for Shakespeare. There are some hard-to-find works here ... Plummer's Hamlet, for example. Sadly, the deep and vasty wood of the world is no safe place, and viruses lurk. If you find a dead link, or a toxic one, pls let me know.

 And, when you think about it, don't you suppose a thank-you might be in order? So, in your idle or intentful hours, here's a place to invest your time.
