JANE AUSTEN'S EMMA ON THE BBC

Last night, a new version of Emma was televised on BBC.

Jane Austen's book was published in 1816. Queen Victoria wasn't born until 1819 - but that's still in the nineteenth century, and close enough for me to take this opportunity to say congratulations to Letty Fox who created the opening credits.

Click onto the post heading and you'll find the link. It takes a while to start - about 3 minutes in - but the images are lovely.

  1. The credits look great - well done, Letty! When I clicked through I ended up watching the whole thing. Really good, though Mr Knightley looked too young - or maybe I'm just old!

  2. You're absolutely right, Caro - much too young...and not helped that Emma looks quite mature. But, she's very good. I heard that she was the first actress to be considered and they closed the auditions the moment they saw her.

  3. Yes, she's excellent - very natural. Tamsin Greig was good too but I didn't realise she was playing Miss Bates at first as she looked so attractive!
