Here is a BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of the enchanting children's classic.
Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert are expecting a child...but the skinny, red-haired girl that turns up is not quite what they had in mind.
When orphan Anne Shirley first arrives at Green Gables she sets the quiet island community of Nova Scotia talking of little else. With her incessant chatter and intense imagination, things are never dull with Anne - in fact, they are frequently fiery. But slowly the islanders realise that beneath the quicksilver tounge and the red-headed temper is a little girl with a heart of gold, who brings a liveliness and warmth to the community that they had never realised was missing.
