Martha Kearney: My Love Affair with the Brontës
For the 200th anniversary of Charlotte Brontë’s birth, Martha Kearney travelled to Haworth Parsonage, the home of the Brontës, to discover the inspiration behind their classic novels for the BBC Two documentary Being the Brontës. She talks about her obsession with Jane Eyre, the insights she gained from her co-presenters, and the challenges of making a documentary about Britain’s most famous literary sisters.
