Description/Abstract

This article recounts the Jewish journey of producer and director Rudolph Cartier, an Austrian refugee from Nazism who forged a new life in Britain from 1935 onwards, playing a pivotal role in the moulding of BBC television’s post-war drama output. It also explores the journey of Jewish cultural texts and traditions as it discusses the production and reception of Cartier’s 1952 English-language adaptation for the small screen of Ansky’s classic play The Dybbuk. The challenges Cartier perceived in completing this production and the responses of both Jewish and non-Jewish audiences reveal much about the limits of assimilation in an increasingly multicultural Britain.
