Adaptations of Jane Austen’s novels have been broadcast on the BBC since the 1930s. To mark the 200-year anniversary of her death, renowned Austen scholar Kathryn Sutherland joins the BBC’s Henrietta Foster and Robert Seatter to discuss highlights from their archive, including the 1995 TV serialisation of Pride and Prejudice – arguably the most iconic Austen adaptation of all time.
