BBC Television Adaption
- I Was A Rat! -

In 2001, the BBC aired a three-part adaption of Philip Pullman's twisted fairy tale, I Was A Rat!.

We have yet to hear from anyone who saw the series, and there is no news of it being released on home video or DVD. However, the production has apparently played at a few select film festivals since broadcast as a single unbroken movie.
