"Classic" Jane Austen Adaptations on BBC Four

Standard

Alert Janeite Liz wrote to tell us that BBC Four is broadcasting Saturday Night Classics each week at around 6 p.m. Last week was the 80s Northanger Abbey, and this week they are showing parts 1 and 2 of the 1972 Emma (presumably the rest will follow). Keep an eye out for these oldies but goodies–who knows what might turn up? (We wait in vain for Auntie Beeb to pull the 1952 P&P with Peter Cushing as Darcy and Prunella Scales as Lydia out of her vaults…)
