Jane Austen season


There's a new Jane Austen season starting on TV in the UK this week, which is good news for Regency fans.

Mansfield Park is the first to air, on Sunday 18th March, with Fanny Price being played by Billie Piper and Edmund played by Blake Ritson, whilst Tom is being played by James D'Arcy.


Northanger Abbey is next, on 25th March, with Catherine Morland being played by Felicity Jones and Henry Tilney by JJ Feild.

The it's on to Persuasion on 1st April. Captain Wentworth is being played by Rupert Penry Jones and Anne Elliot by Sally Hawkins

And to finish, ITV are showing a repeat of Emma on 8th April. This is the TV version from 1996 with Kate Beckinsale as Emma and Mark Strong as Mr Knightley.

And if you're in the US, the dramatisations will be shown on PBS in the autumn - November, we believe.

We can't wait to see them!

Sadly, I don't get ITV here so I'm not going to be able to catch the Jane Austen season on the telly, but I checked Play.com and pre-ordered the DVD already!
