I'm very lucky to have some wonderful friends - one of them, Helen Porter who runs P&P Tours, invited me along to an evening in Bath with Simon Langton, and he gave a very interesting talk about making this iconic series. What was more, I actually got to meet him afterwards - I had to keep pinching myself as I sat next to him sipping Pimms and discussing Jane Austen - it was such a treat!

He gave a similar talk at Chawton in April as part of the 200 year celebrations - you can listen to a podcast of it here and here is a link to a video about the making of the television series.
I still love watching it, and the more I learn about the production, the more enjoyable it gets!
