Charlotte Brontë's literary masterpiece, Jane Eyre chronicles the life of a strong, passionate young woman who survives a miserable childhood to become governess to the children of the troubled Mr Rochester. Her position soon leads her to love and admiration and eventually marriage but with scandalous consequences.
Jane Eyre remains one of Brontë's most popular novels, not only because it is about love but also because it examines issues such as human rights and self-realisation under the most testing of circumstances. This superb BBC dramatisation faithfully relates the original story with immaculate period recreations and brilliant characterisations that have made Jane Eyre one of the greatest romances in literature.
