Update on UK Release for Jane Eyre (BBC 1973)

Thanks to Thisbeciel, we have another link to websites where our friends in the UK will be able to order their copies of Jane Eyre with Sorcha Cusack and Michael Jayston. From this site we have the exact release date of June 5th. The synopsis is a little quirky…

Starring Sorcha Cusack and Michael Jayston, this 1973 BBC television adaptation of the classic novel follows the fortunes of the heroine Jane Eyre who begins her life as an orphan without a penny to her name. After a dreadful childhood Jane Eyre acquires the post of Governess at Thornfield Hall. Once there she finds herself falling in love with the mysterious owner of Thornfield, Mr Rochester. Jane watches Rochester flirt with the beautiful and eligible Blanche Ingram and unable to bear their romance any longer, Jane resigns. Only then does Rochester admit that he loves Jane and asks her to marry him. But Jane’s happiness proves to be shortlived…

Pardon? I don’t remember the scene when she resigns!

ETA: I am still unable to read British dates, obviously. We put the month first in Canada… the release date is June 5th, not May 6th. I’m also too eager to see this, and a little bit of wishful thinking might have contributed to the error.



  1. June 5th! British dates, Bronteana! Good thing I forced myself to write dates the British way. 😀

    Argh! I did it again? …*grumbles* You know, I actually woke up this morning wondering if I had written the date wrong! *sigh*
