A Shakespearean Anniversary

Well, sometimes one is reminded of something great coming, or something to commemorate: next week will be the 400th anniversary of the death of Shakespeare. I knew it already, but Radio Times reminded me with this cover for next week's TV schedule. Apparently, it will be the Shakespeare Season on the BBC. With plays by Shakespeare being featured, documentaries, with the great thespian actors of our time, and so on and so forth. So finally, finally, finally, something good on the telly. In times like this, I am glad to live in England.
