It’s been rumoured for a while that the BBC was making a new version of Jane Austen’s Emma. Now it’s official – their press release says that Sandy Welch has written the screenplay for a four-part mini-series. A shame they’re not doing six parts, as with the 1995 Pride and Prejudice which I’ve just enjoyed re-watching, but four is still giving much more space to tell the story than just a single film! No casting news as yet.
