Hi again, Sean
I just had a thought.( note the date :)

BBC Radio has done a really good version of The Diary of Samuel Pepys. There are a couple but I found the one with Kris Marshall to be excellent.It is long ,so you can hear it in chunks if you like.I think it would give you a real feel for Shakespeare's time, and could help you when you are trying to get things in context.It covers The Plague and The Great Fire of London as well, and foreign affairs.
It's still available

Yve
