Theatre on Apple\'s iPod

UK Theatre Network today launched a version of its first episode for Apple's video iPod, as well as other devices. Glasgow-based actor Douglas McFarlane set up the online service , and over the past year has built up a team of over 100 actors, directors and film crew in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Manchester, London and recently expanded to New York, Chicago and Philadelphia. "The concept is simple, I am passionate about theatre and I know there are millions of people around the world who are as well. I wanted to have the ability to understand more about a musical or play before going to see it. My colleagues and I have been visiting theatre and writing reviews for several years, and now with the advances in internet technology it is possible to watch a short film featuring these reviews and with permission, provide a short trailer of what the performance looks like", McFarlane said. The service filmed both the recent BAFTA Scotland awards and the launch of the National Theatre of Scotland, which have already been edited for download.
