Drama : Emma
Bafta award-winning writer Sandy Welch's dramatisation of Jane Austen's novel, first published in 1815. Romola Garai stars as the independent Emma Woodhouse, who believes she is a skilled matchmaker and tries to pair up her friends and acquaintances. She takes Harriet Smith under her wing and encourages the woman to set her sights higher than her current suitor - against Mr Knightley's warnings about the dangers of meddling. With Jonny Lee Miller, Michael Gambon, Jodhi May and Tamsin Greig.
While continuing her efforts to set up Harriet and the vicar, Emma looks forward to meeting Frank Churchill at the Christmas party, but when he fails to show up she becomes the subject of Mr Elton's unwanted attention. Later, village gossip focuses on the arrival of Jane Fairfax and a piano she was given by a mystery admirer, leaving the matchmaker reluctant to believe Mr Knightley could have sent the gift. Drama, starring Romola Garai, Louise Dylan, Blake Ritson and Laura Pyper.
