A superb BBC version of the classic novel, this has all the quality one would expect from the 'old' BBC. The sets and costumes are superb, as is the music. Although all the performances are very good, what really sets this version above some others is the wonderful portrayal of Emma by Doran Godwin. Her performance throughout the six episodes (each about 45 minutes) captures the enthusiasm, sense of fun and vulnerability of Emma. I really hadn't expected to find, when I purchased this version, that Doran's first rate portrayal would make her by the far the best Emma I have seen.
