    One should not limit viewing of this video to classes studying literature or drama, since it provides enough historical background to fulfill World History needs as well. The origins and staging of Greek theatre are examined. The elements of tragedy and comedy are delineated, and their etymological origins are simply explained. The biographical background of the earlier playwrights is presented in a method that represents the places and people of ancient times in a contemporary comparison that personalizes the presentation. The video is logically organized, with a clear titled outline predicting the pattern of information presented. When the physical layout of the stage parts of the theatres of Greek times is presented, rather than pointing to the individual elements, the titles are centered on the screen. As unique vocabulary terms are stated and defined, the titles in large, bold fond support the script. The pace of this video is slow enough for a younger audience. It does, however, present a nice overview of the topic in a pleasant and informative format.
