Trivia

  • Anne of Green Gables is one of the few BBC 1 Sunday Serials which is missing and no longer exists in the BBC archives, making it one of several lost adaptations.
  • The series was reprised only once, from August 5 to September 2, 1973, on BBC.
  • Kim Braden did record an audiobook of Anne of Green Gables for Music for Pleasure in 1988, possibly capitalising on the CBC series starring Megan Follows. It is an abridged recording (it is only 3 hours long), but together with the surviving stills, it gives a sense of what the 1972 series was like.
