Still looking for The Spaghetti Harvest

Written By: Gary on March 24, 2006 3 Comments

SpaghettiSo it’s almost April Fools day and once again I’m looking for a copy of The Spaghetti Harvest.

…a segment about a bumper spaghetti harvest in southern Switzerland. The success of the crop was attributed to an unusually mild winter. The audience heard Richard Dimbleby, the show’s highly respected anchor, discussing the details of the spaghetti crop as they watched a rural Swiss family pulling pasta off spaghetti trees and placing it into baskets.

I’ve been trying to find this for ages and someone must have a copy somewhere that I can get.

The BBC played this on April 1, 1957 on a serious show (which upset some people). I saw it as a child, a local theater ran it instead of cartoons before a movie, and I’ve always remembered it. Most people don’t even believe me when I say that there is a such a documentary so I’d love to get a copy. FYI, there is an small (awful) copy of it at the above linked sites.

    I remember seeing that as well years ago. Forgot all about it.

    If you still haven’t found a decent copy, the programme that aired it was actually panorama, hope that helps.

    Spaghetti Harvest Footage

    So I’ve been looking for some high quality footage of the Spaghetti Harvest footage for years, this still isn’t that great but it’s completely watchable (previously all I could find was some really crummy footage on the BBC site). I saw it as a child, …
