Greeks on Screen – BFI Project

 

Some of you may have made it to the ‘Classics on TV: BFI’ event at the Southbank this summer.

 

Amanda Wrigley has written some really interesting blog posts about the plays that were screened.

 

 

While the main focus of her research is the translation of these plays from the stage to the screen, there is still a lot of useful and relevant information included here about the staging of these plays.

 

Amanda’s introductory post gives context to her research project, ‘Greeks on Screen’. All her posts also have long comment sections, which are definitely worth a look.

 

I haven’t linked to everything that’s relevant on this page so please take the time to search the site and make the most of this resource:
