‘Anne’ CBC’s new TV series


CBC’s new original drama series, ‘Anne‘, is based on Lucy Maud Montgomery‘s much-loved book, ‘Anne of Green Gables’. Published in 1908, its heroine is getting a new TV treatment.

Beginning on March 19th, 2017, the series debuts on CBC Television across Canada. Amybeth McNulty is the young actor who plays Anne in this latest version.

The original book tells the story of the 11-year-old orphan who is mistakenly sent to Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, a middle-aged brother and sister.

The pair had wanted to adopt a boy to help them on their farm in Prince Edward Island. The novel relays how Anne gets on with the Cuthberts, in school, and in the community.

L. M. Montgomery’s book has sold more than 50 million copies around the world and been translated into 20 languages.

Montgomery wrote several sequels, and since her death in 1942, another sequel has been published, as well as an authorized prequel.

Netiquette »

When you express your personal opinion in an online forum, you must be as courteous as if you were speaking with someone face-to-face. Insults and personal attacks will not be tolerated. To disagree with an opinion, an idea or an event is one thing, but to show disrespect for other people is quite another. Great minds don’t always think alike—and that’s precisely what makes online dialogue so interesting and valuable.

Netiquette is the set of rules of conduct governing how you should behave when communicating via the Internet. Before you post a message to a blog or forum, it’s important to read and understand these rules. Otherwise, you may be banned from posting.

  1. RCInet.ca’s online forums are not anonymous. Users must register, and give their full name and place of residence, which are displayed alongside each of their comments. RCInet.ca reserves the right not to publish comments if there is any doubt as to the identity of their author.
  2. Assuming the identity of another person with intent to mislead or cause harm is a serious infraction that may result in the offender being banned.
  3. RCInet.ca’s online forums are open to everyone, without regard to age, ethnic origin, religion, gender or sexual orientation.
  4. Comments that are defamatory, hateful, racist, xenophobic, sexist, or that disparage an ethnic origin, religious affiliation or age group will not be published.
  5. In online speak, writing in ALL CAPS is considered yelling, and may be interpreted as aggressive behaviour, which is unpleasant for the people reading. Any message containing one or more words in all caps (except for initialisms and acronyms) will be rejected, as will any message containing one or more words in bold, italic or underlined characters.
  6. Use of vulgar, obscene or objectionable language is prohibited. Forums are public places and your comments could offend some users. People who use inappropriate language will be banned.
  7. Mutual respect is essential among users. Insulting, threatening or harassing another user is prohibited. You can express your disagreement with an idea without attacking anyone.
  8. Exchanging arguments and opposing views is a key component of healthy debate, but it should not turn into a dialogue or private discussion between two users who address each other without regard for the other participants. Messages of this type will not be posted.
  9. Radio Canada International publishes contents in five languages. The language used in the forums has to be the same as the contents we publish. The usage of other languages, with the exception of some words, is forbidden. Messages that are off-topic will not be published.
  10. Making repetitive posts disrupts the flow of discussions and will not be tolerated.
  11. Adding images or any other type of file to comments is forbidden. Including hyperlinks to other websites is allowed, as long as they comply with netiquette. Radio Canada International  is in no way responsible for the content of such sites, however.

    Please tell me when you will air the next episode of Anne! I’ve been looking for it on Sundays but to no avail. This series is the best I’ve ever watched, especially Marybeth McNulty.

  2. Sandra Frederiks says:

    I watched the series on my iPad because I missed it on TV. I loved it. Some of the situations were a little different from the book, but overall it was very well done. I liked the different takes and innuendos in the series, it added some interest and suggested that things were probably going on but not mentioned it the original story, let’s face it, suggesting a girl get an education in the early 20th century was pushing boundaries already, to suggest that prim and proper Aunt Josephine had an intimate relationship with a woman, while very possible, would have certainly prevented the book from being printed in those days. Well done, CBC.

  3. Dana Roberts says:

    Awful! CBC has made the story for adults. Sexual innuendos in part 3. Why? It is not in the book. What purpose did the script writer include playing with a boy’s mouse makes babies. No longer a family film. This is neither what parents want nor children should hear. Better stick to the book like the Megan Follows version did. Not a gain in talent. No a revenue maker for public television.–Dana Roberts, M.A.
