Radio Fanfic


The BBC may find itself a bit above such fare as Lost in Austen, but it gets a bit of fanfic of its own on the radio side with “Unseen Austen,” which will be broadcast on Thursday, September 25, on Radio 4’s Afternoon Play from 2.15-3.00 p.m. GMT.

Impertinent young Lydia Bennet discovers that it is her sister Elizabeth who is the heroine of Pride and Prejudice and that her own love life is all offstage. She sets about putting matters right.

One hopes no doors in the shower or body hair topiary will be involved. Thanks to Alert Janeite Chris for the link!
