from archive.org

Charlotte Bronte's most beloved novel - the iconic and dangerous love story starring Amanda Hale and Tom Burke

Award-winning writer Rachel Joyce adapts Charlotte Bronte's famous novel for BBC Radio 4 as part of this year's bicentenary celebrations of Bronte's birthday (21st April 1816).

This 10-part drama is a mix of romance, passion, injustice and danger all wrapped-up in a love story. Jane Eyre is arguably as relevant today as it was when it was published in 1847. It is an emotional rollercoaster of a story, which follows the experiences of the young title character.
