London Screening for New BBC Jane Eyre

The following information is currently unconfirmed. An anonymous Bronteana reader sends us this tip that the BBC’s new Jane Eyre, starring Ruth Wilson and Toby Stephens will have a screening at the National Film Theatre, London on September 16th, 2006. The first two hours of the production, which we hear is 4 hours long, will be shown at the theatre followed by a question period with the members of the cast and production team. I have been unable to confirm this in any way, the NFT’s September schedule has yet to be posted online. I will keep an eye out for any further references to it.

Thanks, anonymous and bluebell!

ETA: Also, more news on the new Thursday Next novel, here.



  1. OMG!!!! Although I am disappointed that I cannot go, I think it is great! I propose we readers (and you of course) must write some questions so that whoever goes could perhaps ask a few of them :D!!!

  2. That’s a good idea! I did in fact try to beg a friend of mine in London to go for my sake 😉 I hope she takes pity on me.

    There is so much to ask, I hardly know where to begin. Do you have any pressing questions?

  3. Pressing? They are too many!

    However, I’d really like to know what Gerogie Henley thinks of Jane’s Red Room scene.

  4. I can’t think straight at the moment. There are too many questions, but I would imagine that some of them would be answered by the screening itself, but that more would likely crop up as well.

    That’s assuming there is a rRed Room scene. I have seen productions which omit it, or only turn it into a sort of motif during the opening credits.
