    I was a bit apprehensive that this programme would be good or not and when it started with the silly scene of flaming heads
    I thought no it would not be, but it improved considerably I was especially pleased with the authentic looking Victorian
    scenery showing the dirt an all I have often wondered how the Brontes faired in the way of cleanliness, given that they only had a Well and no modern toilet facilities ? I think this programme needed to be watched by people who already knew the
    story as it was a bit difficult to follow in places, but overall a very good production.
