Jane Austen's stubborn heroine is reprised in this special four-part series.
Rich, independent and kind spirited, Emma Woodhouse has no need
to marry herself, but nothing delights her more than matchmaking
those around her.
Yet Emma plays a dangerous game as she persuades her new friend, the young, pretty and socially inferior Harriet to reject an advantageous marriage proposal to a local farmer in favour of dashing Mr Elton.
So begins a story which challenges Emma's naivety, her social preconceptions and her relationship with Mr. Knightley.
Fresh and funny, this perceptive adaptation, featuring a stellar cast, brings Jane Austen's comic masterpiece to life.
