BBC’s Pride and Prejudice, based on Jane Austen’s most famous novel, is a classic tale of 18th century life among the English gentry and the dramatic courtships of the very eligible Bennet girls set against a society obsessed by profitable marriage contracts.
When the wealthy and aloof Mr Darcy insults Elizabeth Bennet at a dance, an attraction is instantly sparked. Meanwhile her flirtatious younger sister Lydia becomes involved in a scandal that threatens to jeopardise family beauty Jane’s chances with a gentleman presumed out of her league.
