History of theatre

As I blogged a few days ago, there's lots of content on Youtube. Much of it is crap of course, but some is very good.

Its production values are crap, but the content is pretty good, including clips of performances of ancient Greek plays. I find the narrator's indeterminate accent strangely compelling. Her name is Minke van den Berg so I assume she's Dutch, but she seems to know her way around Greek pronunciations.
