"The Whiteoaks of Jalna" was a 1972 Canadian television drama miniseries, based on the novel by Mazo de la Roche. At CAD 2 million, it set a record expense at the time for a Canadian television miniseries. The series was exported internationally including the United Kingdom and France. Scriptwriting was led by Timothy Findley, supported by Claude Harz and Graeme Woods.


* Due to the convoluted nature of the storyline, which expanded from the 1850s to the 1970s, CBC published a family tree of the people involved in the miniseries, so viewers could get a better understanding where they were in the program.
* The miniseries was originally planned to extend beyond 13 episodes, but production was curtailed by the CBC technician's strike that year.
* Despite this being a CBC production, the original run of the mini-series was blacked out on CKLW-TV in Windsor, Ontario (then partially-owned by the CBC), as the CBC originally planned to sell the series to an American network or syndicator. Such a sale did not materialise.
* The miniseries was rebroadcast in 1974, but was re-edited with extra footage added and some scenes (especially those taking place in the modern day) cut.
