Product Description

This Bronte BBC collection box set includes:

The Tenant Of Wildfell Hall (Dir. Mike Barker, 1996): This is the fantastic BBC adaptation of Anne Bronte's novel.
When Helen Graham becomes the new tenant of the dark, decaying Wildfell Halt, her independent spirit and radical views set her apart from the staid rural community around her. Gilbert Markham, a young farmer, finds himself powerfully drawn to her and a series of dramatic events brings them closer together. But the enigmatic Mrs Graham's unconventional life and behaviour disguise a hidden past with many secrets, secrets the world of Victorian England would rather bury forever...

Jane Eyre (Dir. Julian Amyes, 1983): This is the superb BBC production of Charlotte Bronte's novel.
Jane Eyre (Zelah Clarke) is a mistreated orphan who learns to survive by relying on her independence and intelligence. Her first job in the outside world is governess to the ward of Mr. Rochester (Timothy Dalton), a man of many secrets and mercurial moods. The tentative trust between them slowly develops into romance, but their hopes for happiness will soon be jeopardized by a terrible secret.

Wuthering Heights (Dir. Peter Hammond, 1978):
Emily Bronte's classic tale of all-consuming love. When Mr. Earnshaw encounters Heathcliff, a ragamuffin orphan, he kindly brings the boy into his home and makes him part of the family. And from the start, Heathcliff falls hopelessly in love with the daughter of the house, the beautiful, headstrong Catherine. She adores him, too, but when a wealthy neighbour woos her, Catherine's material instincts get the better of her, and she agrees to marry the man. However, Catherine discovers that she cannot forget Heathcliff so easily... and that not even death can make them part...

5.0 out of 5 stars BBC: a guarantee of quality, always. 8 Dec 2009
Format:DVD
I'd already seen the three films years ago, but I really enjoyed seeing them again. They are very good adaptations: the scripts are faithful to the original plots, the actors are great, well chosen settings and costumes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bronte 7 May 2011
By mittens
Format:DVD
A good range of Bronte material.I particularly liked Tenant of Wildfell Hall.I wanted to use Jane Eyre with a group of year 8 girls,the less able found it a bit too long.Tenant of Wildfell Hall I decided was too racy for them.

I've seen other versions, but these are splendid. I'm a big fan of the Bronte sisters. I recommend these. I have also read the books, they're definitely worth buying.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Good & the Bad 28 May 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Luckily, we viewed these with Wuthering Heights last, because if that had been first, we would probably given up on the other two. The whole production seemed amateurish, with the acting almost of church drama club standard. Jane Ayre and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall made the collection worth buying. We gave up half-way through Wuthering Heights second part.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 19 Mar 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
There are very few adaptations available of the "Tenant" and this is an excellent version. The only criticism I would make is that if you are studying the Brontes do not take it quite literally, the producers have seen fit to change the conclusion of the book. Otherwise a very good watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jane Eyre version is a favourite 14 July 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was only looking for Jane Eyre to replace a very worn out VHS tape but felt this was a good deal as a set, it is worth it just for my favourite version of Jane Eyre with passionate acting skills. I had seen Tenant of Wildfell Hall before and enjoyed rewatching it. Had never seen this version of Wuthering Heights before and although a slow start I did get into it - mostly the last part -but remember it is from 1978 so filming quality different. All very inspiring to reread the novels.

I enjoyed the adaptation of Jane Eyre and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall as I felt they were true to the book and the acting performances were first rate. I do not rate this version of Wuthering Heights. The acting performances, in my view, were "over the top", too dramatic, too much shouting/wailing, very "stagey" settings.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the best adaptations!
These books are indeed value for money, if you don't mind seeing them without your favourite stars. On the whole, very much worth watching.
