Emma and Persuasion on BBC Radio 7 this week

February 2, 2009

Alert Janeite Cate let us know that BBC Radio 7 will be broadcasting radio plays of Emma and Persuasion this week. Emma is in two parts on Monday (that’s today! 11 a.m.!) and Tuesday, with rebroadcasts on Tuesday and Wednesday, and Persuasion in three parts on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, with rebroadcasts of each episode on the following day. Some familiar names show up in the cast list. We hope we get to hear them on this side of the pond! :-) (she said hopefully) Each show will be available to listen to online for a week after the final broadcast.

    And we are also delighted to know of the forthcoming broadcast of a dramatisation of that favourite novel of ours, Mansfield Park, by George Eliot.

    he he.

    Heh heh, they’re also broadcasting Middlemarch this week. I guess someone was racing through trying to get pages up for the lady authors and got them mixed up.

    I love Juliet Stevenson – totally underrated as an actress. Her audiobook versions of the Austen novels are my favorite to listen to. It will be wonderful to hear her in Persuasion.

    Try iplayer directly:

    tends to be more reliable that realplayer

    It says I have to install Real Player to play it. I don’t want to install Real Player. I have perfectly functioning audio players on my computer now and finite room on my hard drive. ARGH.

    It works for me (Win XP, Firefox and Chrome) and I don’t have Real Player installed.
