Shakespeare Dramas on BBC Radio

BBC Radio are currently doing a short series of radio versions of Shakespeare plays. I'm afraid the first one (Twelfth Night)'s gone, but the second, "Romeo and Juliet" is available to download as an MP3 file from:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/podcasts/series/so3

until next Sunday. I believe it should be available world-wide; radio programmes generally are.

The final one in the series, "The Tempest", will be available from Sunday.

Downloading it already. David Tennant is a big plus, BTW.

Thanks for the info.

Damn it! I would have loved to get Twelfth Night. Oh well I'll just have to console myself with "Romeo and Juliet" and "The Tempest" then.

The completist in me is actually sad that that I found out after the first one is gone. Now I'll only ever get 2 out of 3.

Thanks for the link though.

Ditto. Wonder why they'd have it up for streaming but not download. I'd think they will use up more bandwidth that way?

Do a Google search for "get_iplayer". It's an open source program for downloading from the iPlayer streaming site.

A companion piece to go along with these Shakespeare plays is this from BBC Radio 4:

Shakespeare’s Restless World

Quote:
British Museum Director Neil MacGregor presents Shakespeare's Restless World. The 20-part series looks at the world through the eyes of Shakespeare's audience by exploring objects from that turbulent period.
Each episode is 14 minutes long (~5 hours total) and broadcast Mon-Fri. They've already released 11 so far. There is no expiration on these downloads, so you'll be able to collect the entire series.

The British Museum are staging a major exhibition about Shakespeare starting in July. These BBC things are probably associated with that.

Would love to see it; but that means I'd have to become a travelin' monkey.
