Anne of Green Gables

Precocious yet lovable Anne Shirley returns to public television during an encore presentation of Anne of Green Gables, a classic television series that chronicles the trials and tribulations of a young orphan girl navigating her way through life.

Based on the 1908 novel by Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery, the story's fairytale charm, emotional power and endless wit has made it a fixture in
children's libraries around the world for nearly a century. The drama first premiered on public television in 1986 and garnered several prestigious awards, including an Emmy Award for Outstanding Children's Program, nine Academy of Canadian Cinema and TV Gemini Awards, a Peabody Award, and TV Guide's Most Popular Program for 1986.
