From 1976 through the early 1980s, PBS broadcast the series "Once Upon A Classic". The series consisted of classic stories filmed in England, then show in thirty minute parts over a period of several weeks. In between the major series there were single episode specials.

Among the classics: Heidi, Great Expectations, The Prince and the Pauper, Little Lord Faulteroy, The Secret Garden, Robin Hood, Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm, Dominique, The Leatherstocking Tales, What Katie Did, Lights! Camera! Action!, John Halifax-Gentlemen, Lorna Doone, Mill on the Floss, Ivanhoe, King Arthur, The Old Curiosity Shop, and A Tale of Two Cities.

Only "bad" point (if it could be called that): The series followed the book as closely as possible. As such, if the hero died in the book then the hero died in the series. A bit grim, but so is life!!!
