Emma ... Exclusive to ABC

A new BBC adaptation of Emma is now available. Romola Garai does a wonderful job of capturing the flippant matchmaker, Emma and follows a long list of others who have played the role including Kate Beckinsale and Gwyneth Paltrow. Do you have a favourite adaptation of a Jane Austen classic?

Beautiful, clever, and rich Emma Woodhouse is convinced she is good at matchmaking after her older sister and her governess both marry suitable husbands. Emma, certain of her talents, plays a dangerous game as she persuades her new friend, the young, pretty and socially inferior Harriet to reject an advantageous marriage proposal to a local farmer in favour of dashing Mr Elton. Fresh and funny, this new four part adaptation, featuring a stellar cast, brings Jane Austen's comic masterpiece to life.
