I know this is an old posting, but I remember me and my friends watching it in Spain where it entranced us... if anyone knows how to find it with English or Spanish subtitles please let me know.

By the way, if any of you remember this in Spain in 1973, here is a link to Spanish comments on the programme:

I know the technology I dream of might not be perfected or commercial as of yet, but here is what I would like to do (not to make a lot of money, just as a sort of cultural service):

I am fluent in both English and Swedish, and have taken several university translating courses. I would seriously translate my favorite Swedish masterpieces just for fun. And noticing how many international imdb users seem to be requesting dvd subtitles that don't exist, I would like to get in touch with someone who's talented with for example DivX or something like it. I don't know how legal this would all be, but if you don't charge people for more than the empty disc?

If anyone reading this has any thoughts or comments, please reply!

I'm especially eager to make English subtitles for all of Astrid Lindgren's films, but "Den vita stenen" should absolutely be enjoyed by as many people as possible, young and old, all around the world!

No. Only swedish speaking VHS's are available.

This excellent TV series, along with numerous other fantastic Swedish children's programs from the 70's and the early 80's are simply not available any longer (commercially). As such, I have no qualms recommending that you download them via a BitTorrent client using any of the numerous sites that specialize in these kind of services. The Swedish site "The Pirate Bay" provides links to this film as of my writing this note (I just downloaded them). Search for "Den Vita Stenen".

Please note, although so called torrent trackers and the method of torrent downloading is not illegal in Sweden, it may be in your own country.

Some files are large DVD files, and some are ripped to a format called DivX (sort of like the film equivlanet to an mp3, if you will). If you find a DivX film, you can write your own subtitles to it, using a text format called .srt. Google it, and I'm sure you'll figure it out. For Windows, I recommend the uTorrent client.
