Shakespeare Land 1957

5 mins United Kingdom

A short travelogue tour of Shakespeare's Warwickshire intended for early adopters of the ATV Midlands television service. Beginning in quiet Hampton Lucy with its Boars Head pub it moves on through Aston Cantlow and then Henley in Arden with its mile long High Street of half-timbered buildings. The cameras finally visit Stratford upon Avon bustling with Shakespeare themed gift shops and tourists in search of an authentic literary history.

The Media Archive for Central England is the public screen archive for the East and West Midlands. An independent charity and company based at the University of Lincoln, MACE acquires, catalogues, preserves and makes widely available moving image materials that inform our understanding of the diverse cultures and histories of communities between the Lincolnshire coast and the Welsh border.
