Brontes on BBC Radio

Thanks to Thisbeciel and Biedroneczka for the tip that Tea with Mr Rochester by Frances Towers is playing on BBC Radio (which you can listen to online). Tea with Mr Rochester. A schoolgirl comes face to face with her literary idol. Read by Romola Garai.

More traditional fare is available as well. There’s a production of Charlotte Bronte’s Shirley, and Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights.

For about a week you may also download these three radio adaptations of Jane Eyre (not from the BBC). Thisbeciel just cracked into a pile of these things, apparently:

Matinee Theatre- Gertrude Warner, Victor Jory (reported to be hilariously bad and heavily influenced by Rebecca.)
Favorite Story- Peggy Webber, William Conrad
Radio Hall of Fame- Joan Fontaine, Frederic March
Playhouse of Famous Authors- actors unknown

There’s also the complete Shirley adaptation: Episode one, two, three, four, five, and six.



  1. A Special Thank You to both you and Thisbeciel!!
