New William Shakespeare portrait found

It's been a while since I've had an dealings with Country Life magazine (I worked as a researcher on a BBC2 documentary in Bristol about its 100th year anniversary in 1996!), but this story looks a good 'un - the discovery of a new image of William Shakespeare, thanks to the cracking of a Tudor code surrounding the illustration in a 16th century book.

The full story is available at http://www.countrylife.co.uk/features/world-exclusive-the-true-face-of-shakespeare-revealed-for-the-first-time-video-72243
