I have set my self the task of watching the adaptations in the order Austen wrote the novels :- Northanger Abbey, Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma and Persuasion. I have several versions of each so this should keep me busy for sometime.
First up this version of Northanger Abbey
It is quite faithful to the story – except for this character
who is General Tilney’s ‘friend’ – she apparently gives him all of the gossip.
Although this adaptation is a bit dated (and a bit strange at times), it is still worth watching.
