“Shakespeare: Drama’s DNA.” Perf. Richard Eyre, Peter Brook, and Judy Dench. Dir. Roger Parsons. Changing Stages. Episode 1. BBC. 5 November 2000. Videocassette. Films for the Humanities, 2001.
Peter Brook's film version of King Lear hasn't been released in DVD in American markets. But I discovered a small segment on the videocassette that presented a short clip of Peter Brook's 1970 stage production of Midsummer Night's Dream. It's starting to become something like Rare-and-Interesting-Clips-of-Shakespeare-Productions Week at Bardfilm!

Good news - Brook's King Lear in its entirety can currently be found on Youtube... with Spanish subtitles, admittedly... This is marvellous as it's not available on DVD in NZ either and I was about to buy a VHS player just to see it again. http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL7C010DA6260FA287
Wonderful! Thanks very much for calling our attention to that link!
