For the past couple of years, on PBS, they have played classics such as Austen and Dickens. This year they are having a new version of Emma! When they aired the complete works of Jane Austen before they had an older version. But they have made a new one starring Romola Garai (Emma Woodhouse), Jonny Lee Miller (Mr. Knightley), and Michael Gambon (Mr. Woodhouse). It begins on Sunday, January 24. Part two airs on Sunday, January 31, and on Sunday, February 7, the last installment will be aired. For the time and length click this link.
I don't know about you but I will be watching this with a hot cup of tea and a blanket (or my new snuggie). I can't wait!
One half of the world cannot understand the pleasures of the other.
~Jane Austen, Emma
