Discuss BBC Television Shakespeare

Item: BBC Television Shakespeare

Language: en

Type of Problem: Incorrect_content

Extra Details: This entry is a big mess! There are 7 seasons, but season 1 consists of 37 "episodes" ranging from 1978 to 1985 (I think), and the other 6 seasons include "episodes" that are already listed in season 1 (meaning, they are duplicates).

Also, a lot (if not all) of these "episodes" exist as single movie entries in the database - just search for some of the titles. They have the same air dates, so they're basically the same listed twice. Is that because this is a collection? But why not use the movie entries with more information for the collection?

As a user who has no clue about the content I'm completely confused by this.

Old series of TV plays and TV movies are allowed in both sections. Unlike the miniseries exception, the anthology/umbrella series one will not be discontinue this summer.

The entry truly is a big mess. We will have to google and see if the seven seasons split can be verified.

Ah, I didn't know that (or forgot, again ...). cowboy

Honestly, I can't even remember how I got to this page? If this is on your things-to-fix-in-the-future list, then all is good and I'll close this discussion.

Best wishes,
