About the series
Great Expectations, Jane Eyre, Mrs Dalloway, Frankenstein…just some of the classic works of fiction that we all know and love. But how well do we really know them?
We might remember Rochester and Jane’s sparky dialogue in Jane Eyre or Frankenstein's monster jerking to life in the classic black and white movies…
But these rich and vibrant works have much more to offer us, and in this series our presenters will revisit original texts, manuscripts, diaries and correspondence to reveal new insights into some of the greatest works of literature.
You can watch this series on BBC Four from Tuesday 2nd September 2014 at 8:30pm. More information about this programme and a link to catch up later on iPlayer will be available from the BBC website.
