The Complete Jane Austen on Masterpiece Theatre

May 22, 2007 at 4:43 pm | Posted in TV News | Leave a comment

Beginning in January 2008, Masterpiece Theatre is airing adaptations of every Jane Austen novel.  This will include reairings of the Colin Firth Pride and Prejudice and the Kate Beckinsale Emma, a new BBC version of Sense and Sensibility, and three new ITV productions: Mansfield Park, Persuasion, and Northhanger Abbey.  I’ve seen the ITV films already, and they’re two-hour versions, with a few irritating story changes.  I won’t waste my time on Mansfield Park again, but Northhanger Abbey and Persuasion were a lot of fun.
