George Sainton Kaye Butterworth (1885-1916) was an English composer, best known for his settings of . Born on 12th July 1885, he studied at Trinity College, Oxford, with fellow composer Ralph Vaughan Williams, going on to become a music critic for The Times while composing and teaching at Radley College, a public school in Oxfordshire. Between 1911 and 1912, he composed two of the most enduring cycles of British song: Bredon Hill and Other Songs and Six Songs from "A Shropshire Lad", both settings of Housman poems.

Tales from Watership Down is a collection of 19 short stories by Richard Adams, published in 1996 as a follow-up to Adams's highly successful 1972 novel about rabbits, Watership Down. It consists of a number of short stories of rabbit mythology, followed by several chapters featuring many of the characters introduced in the earlier book.

Watership Down: Bunnies are waaaayyyy more complicated than you think. Jane Eyre: Strong independent woman routinely gets fucked over by rich people, broody men, and life. Wuthering Heights: Everyone is horrible. As aforementioned, Watership Down and Plague Dogs were written by the same man, Richard Adams. Believe it or not, after seeing both movies, I would argue that Plague Dogs is actually worse in comparison, even though Watership Down presents more blood and gore. But make no mistake, this is not a tame movie by any stretch of the imagination. This film is perhaps the most violent on this list, as it depicts multiple scenes of murder, abuse, intense beatings, and even some animal cruelty. The plot mainly follows a flashback of three young boys as they suffer through their horrible schooldays, where they are bullied for being the three least successful students.

In 2011, Watership Down was adapted for the Lifeline Theatre in Chicago by John Hildreth Role-playing game In 1984, Watership Down was adapted into a four-cassette audiobook by John Maher in association with the Australian Broadcasting Company's Renaissance Players. Produced by John Hannaford and narrated by Kerry Francis, the audiobook was distributed by The Mind's Ey.

Set in southern England, the story features a small group of rabbits. Bluebell: Buck rabbit who escapes with Holly during the destruction of Sandleford and tells jokes to cope and help Holly recover from the mental strain of seeing the Sandleford warren destroyed. He will often jokingly speak in rhyme. Strawberry: Buck from Cowslip's warren who leaves with the Watership Down rabbits after his doe is killed by a snare. Strawberry is strong and sleek but not as hardy as the other rabbits given his warren upbringing but learns quickly and gets along well with the group.
