    This BBC series is really very good indeed. So much better than the recent film starring Keira Knightley, it's a shame that few people know about it. Being a series, they haven't had to cut much material, so it's full of all the detail we so love from the book. Elizabeth and Darcy are fantastically vibrant portrayals, and it really feels like an adaptation should. It's been a favourite since I was 14, and it still is - in fact, I've just bought a new copy for my student house.

Jane Austen's famous comedy of manners and romance is once more developed for the screen in the grand traditions of the BBC costume drama. Adapted by Andrew Davies after his success with the television adaptation of George Elliot's 'Middlemarch', the series was the BBC's flagship drama in the Autumn 1995 schedule. The story revolves around the arrival of the wealthy Mr Darcy (Colin Firth) and party and the excitement he causes amongst the five daughters of the Bennett family.
