What are you doing this winter?

My sister just told me about this airing on PBS beginning in January.

Coming: The Complete Jane Austen

Looking ahead into 2008, Masterpiece suggests you flag January 13th in your datebook. That's when "The Complete Jane Austen" begins airing on Sunday nights, with new presentations of Persuasion, Northanger Abbey, Mansfield Park and Sense and Sensibility. The lineup also includes Emma, the acclaimed film starring Kate Beckinsale, and Pride and Prejudice*, the Emmy award-winning miniseries that made Colin Firth a heartthrob. Miss Austen Regrets, a true story based on Jane Austen's own letters and diaries, will also be a part of the four-month marathon.

*A production of BBC Television and BBC Worldwide Americas, Inc. in association with A&E Networks. Masterpiece Theatre's broadcast of Pride and Prejudice is the first in the U.S. other than on A&E Television Networks.
Here is a link to Masterpiece Theatre with more information, an opportunity for an e-newsletter, and loads of other amazing programming!
