Some of the plays were based on productions staged at the National Theatre during the period when Olivier was Artistic Director. In addition to distinguished English actors, the casts assembled for these productions included several Hollywood stars, such as Natalie Wood, Robert Wagner, Joanne Woodward and Maureen Stapleton.
The individual plays adapted for television were:
- Cat on a Hot Tin Roof by Tennessee Williams
- The Collection by Harold Pinter
- Hindle Wakes by Stanley Houghton
- Come Back, Little Sheba by William Inge
- Daphne Laureola by James Bridie
- Saturday, Sunday, Monday by Eduardo De Filippo.
The complete series was re-released by Network Media individually and as part of The Laurence Olivier Centenary Collection along with The Ebony Tower.
