Starting today, December 12, you can listen to a 1999 three-part dramatization of Villette in BBC Radio 4 Extra. We published some years ago this post, that now we can republish:
An adaptation of the Charlotte Brontë novel by James Friel with Joseph Fiennes (Dr. Graham Bretton), Catherine McCormack (Lucy Snowe), Harriet Walter (Madame Beck), James Laurenson (Paul Emmanuel), Keira Knightley (Polly).

Wed 12 Aug, 10:00 - 15:00 - 03:00  60 mins
Lucy Snowe: Lucy Snowe leaves "the wilderness" of England to become "something". Episode 1 of 3.
Thu 13 Dec, 10:00 - 15:00 - 03:00 60 mins
