Adaptations

The English television serial, often rerun on the Public Broadcasting System, carries over the spirit of the four books with attractive lightness without sacrificing depth. The humor is more accessible, Siegfried is less vicious, and the relationship between the brothers is more comfortable.

All Creatures Great and Small is the title of a feature-length film based on Herriot's work, but it is not a straight adaptation of that book. Heriot, played by Christopher Timothy, has returned home to practive after having served in World War II. Although he has been away for years, the bucolic life is as bucolic as ever, and provides a setting for his poignant animal stories taken from his several books. This 1986 film, directed by Terence Dudley, also stars Robert Hardy and Peter Davison.
