We read in The Bookseller about the death of Sally Marmion (1964-2017), mostly known for her work as adaptor of many novels for BBC Radio. Among her many credits, a couple of Brontës, a fifteen-part (15 minutes each) Jane Eyre adaptation and a five-part adaptation of Lucasta Miller's The Brontë Myth:
Book of the Week: The Bronte Myth (2001)

Since 1857, when Elizabeth Gaskell published her life of Charlotte Bronte, hardly a year has gone by without material on the Brontës appearing. Lucasta Miller traces the route by which they ach ieved prominence and shows how history has become : myth. Abridged in five parts by Sally Marmion and read by Samantha Bond.
