What to expect

BBC Audio presents Emma, Jane Austen's engaging and infuriating tale. Austen famously challenged her readers with 'heroine whom no one but myself will much like', yet this dramatisation brings Emma to life with romantic meddling, social climbing and perfect happiness.

Emma Woodhouse is equal parts witty, spoilt and vain, and sets her mind on matchmaking. She coaches her long suffering friend Harriet through social interactions and proposals, with disastrous consequences. Can Emma fix her flaws in time to mend her relationships?

Starring Angharad Rees.
