Well-known literary works, lesser-known adaptations


Recommended Posts

The BBC around 1970 did a wonderful mini-series of Dostoevsky's THE POSSESSED, starring Keith Bell, Rosalie Crutchley, Angela Pleasence, and James Caffrey, among others. Apparently this now exists only in a 16mm version and has never been released on VHS or DVD. They also produced a much acclaimed mini-series of Dostoevsky's THE IDIOT, never released in the U.S., starring David Buck. I've always wanted to see this, but the BBC evidently lost one of the episodes, and thus it is not available in any format.


You would expect the BBC to be an excellent curator of its own work, but this is not the case.
