Did You Know?


Kenneth More recalls in his autobiography, "More or Less" (1978), that the film copyright to "White Rabbit" was held by Hal E. Chester. Chester would not give permission for the BBC series to be made in case he decided to make a film of the book himself. However, the BBC (in British Law) can by-pass this, provided they make one transmission only of the subject and do not repeat the programme or sell it elsewhere. According to More, the then Controller of Features at the BBC, David Attenborough, decided to go ahead with the project, show it once and then destroy the tapes. It is therefore unlikely that any copy of this production still exists. See more »

"The White Rabbit": Our BBC Ealing Studios Quest
9 January 2003 | by john-ruffleSee all my reviews

I'm a college lecturer - and my office and classroom just happens to be the location used in "The White Rabbit" mini-series aired in 1967 on BBC2.

Our college location is less than a stone's throw from the historic "Ealing Studios". The room used as the Nazi HQ in the BBC production was, at that time, the library of "Ealing Grammar School for Boys". It is now an open access I.T. area in a college of further education, and most of the shelving has gone. However, I've managed to stop the last wall of the oak bookshelves featured in the drama from being ripped down; indeed, it is now the main feature in my individual learning area, which is in a part of the main room.

Alas, I've never seen the production, (which is either 5 episodes, 4 episodes or 4 + 1 pilot, depending who you believe). If anyone can help me in locating an archive copy, and getting us a dub, (or just some production stills that we can frame and put up "on location"), I'd be very grateful.

I personally believe that giving youth a sense of history and "connectedness" should be a core part of education. Our "White Rabbit" project is just one of the ways we are exploring the historic motion picture / media roots of our local Ealing community.
