Reason for going multi-Region in US!,
This review is from: In Search of Shakespeare [DVD] (DVD)
I never had the pleasure or even the opportunity to view this series on TV. Reading the reviews of the show and being a Shakespeare addist, I knew I had to see this, had to own the set. What with the new multi-region player (bought primarily for this very DVD) and the discs and the postage, this must have cost me $150. Well worth the price! I sat right down and watched it and in 2 sessions, had seen it all.
Beat out my Shakespeare 101 classes at university hands down for interest and content! Not only was the information exciting and (some) new (and perhaps speculative), but the host was engaging, the photography stunning (I am decided I MUST go to England next year!) and the locations fascinating.
You really do owe this to yourself if you have ANY interest in the Bard. If you're in the UK you can own it for pennies on the dollar (shillings on the pound?) than my costs. Highest accolades!

Mr. P. J. R. LEWIS says:
Hope your visit to Britain went well and if you have not managed to reach our shores just yet make sure you do.
If you really want to discover more about Britains historical past purchase a copy of the Penguine Classics translation of our 900 year old Domesday Book.
Its a large book over 1400 pages long but what a read HISTORY DRIPPING FROM EVERY PAGE.
When you reach the UK make sure you visit Wales especially Conwy in North Wales because PLAS MAWR in Conwy has the finest 16C town house anywhere in Britain - check its website and see.
