Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights, Deirdre Coleman, 24 June
Emily Brontë’s unnerving, elemental Wuthering Heights, which perplexed readers at the time with its shocking rendition of "humanity in this wild state" (Britannia, January 1848), is a classic of English Literature.

Presented by Professor Deirdre Coleman, an expert on eighteenth and nineteenth century literature, whose books include Romantic Colonization and British Anti-Slavery (2005), Maiden Voyages and Infant Colonies: Two Women's Travel Narratives of the 1790s (1999) and Coleridge and 'The Friend' (1988).
