Austen on PBS

Jane Austen's mixed up matchmaker is back. This season PBS's Masterpiece Classic will be airing an all new production of Emma January 24 - February 7 at 9pm. Full episodes of Emma are available to watch online and the library has also ordered several copies on DVD. You might also want to revisit the A&E version of Emma starring Kate Beckinsale or the 1996 version with Gwyneth Paltrow.

Later in February, Masterpiece Classic will also be airing presentations of Persuasion, which the library already carries on DVD and Northanger Abbey (Austen's parody of the Gothic novel) .


Thanks for letting me know I can request this already! I intended to watch on TV, but I missed the first weekend. Of course, my favorite version of Emma will always be Clueless.
