Being The Brontës
A BBC Arts Bristol documentary marking the 200th anniversary of Charlotte Bronte’s birth.
Martha Kearney, novelist Helen Oyeyemi and journalist Lucy Mangan travel to Haworth Parsonage, the home of Charlotte and her sisters Emily and Anne, to discover the inspiration behind their classic novels Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights and Agnes Grey.
The trio learn how the Brontes combined literary genius with real-life experience to create some of the best-loved novels in the English language.
BDH combined handwriting and illustrations of the famous sisters, with the dark and brooding landscapes of Yorkshire.
