Between February 1937 and April 1939 the fledgling BBC television service from Alexandra Palace broadcast more than twenty Shakespeare adaptations. Although no recordings exist of these transmissions, this chapter explores their surviving written traces. The article also outlines the production environment, cultural context and intermedial connections of interwar television Shakespeare.
