If you would like to see the Welles film Chimes at Midnight, it is available on YouTube Here. I know YouTube is less than ideal, but there are legal issues that prevent it from being released for sale.
We also endorse this film of Henry IV. I couldn't find it on Amazon, so I am providing the link through NetFlix.
Listener Sarah was cool enough to nominate us for a podcast award, you can see the other nominees and vote for us Here.

This is the new version of Bryson's Shakespeare: The World As Stage I mentioned in this episode
