TVOntario is airing Lost in Austen on Tuesday nights at 9 pm, repeating at midnight starting tonight August 4!
Starring Jemima Rooper, Elliot Cowan, Hugh Bonneville, Tom Mison, Christina Cole, Tom Riley, , Guy Henry and Gemma Arterton as Elizabeth.
(Came across this review of LIA via Twitter which I think sums it up nicely. I happen to be one of the ones that was thoroughly entertained by this series although I realize it's not everyone's cup of tea.)
Just noticed that they're also showing Little Dorrit on Thursdays, starting August 6 at 9pm, repeating at 12 or 12:30 depending on the week. It will be shown in 8 - hour long episodes.
Starring Claire Foy, Matthew Macfadyen and a large cast of veteran actors! Not to be missed if you've not seen it yet.
Just heard rumblings about a film adaptation being done of Les Miserables, the musical. I have to say that I'd be very keen to see this since when I first watched the film with Liam Neeson, I assumed it was a musical, and although I adore the concert version, I'd like to see it done dramatically versus singers standing on the stage. There's a listing for it on Imdb but no word yet on how far this project has progressed.
It features CE Brock's illustrations of P&P and can be found at Cafepress...
