Persuasion archiveAusten's heroine, Anne Elliot, has 'claims of birth, beauty, mind and fortune'. She and the handsome Captain Wentworth of His Majesty's Navy have met and separated some years before. Their reunion forces a recognition of the false values that drove them apart. A charming story of love and marriage, Persuasion sparkles with Jane Austen's perceptive wit and her wry observations of nineteenth century English society.

Victoria (31May17): A great twist on a British classic. The actors were brilliant completely transfixing - I laughed and cried. Can seriously recommend this show.
