When the BBC first undertook this six-year project, it became the most ambitious undertaking ever attempted on film. This was the first time in the 400 years since they were written that all 37 plays would be preserved on tape. Now they are available to watch online in streaming video.  Produced by Cedric Messina and Dr. Jonathan Miller, it includes performances by Britain's most distinguished theatrical talent.

Permanent links to each individual video are available below (remote access ready).  Click on the title to watch the video:
