Scripts not produced

Scope and Content

Includes TV, theatre and film projects (some of which had been commissioned) that Hopcraft developed to the point where a script had been written. However, it appears that none of these were ever produced (a version of Silas Marner was screened in 1985, but Hopcraft regarded the major rewrites to his script as unacceptable, and insisted that his name be removed from the credits). Work on some of these projects (e.g. Wuthering Heights, Nuremberg, Philby) was well advanced and the material often includes drafts of scripts, research notes, correspondence (including 'rejection' letters), etc.
