Quotes

Jane Eyre: I was myself still, without obvious change. Yet where was the Jane Eyre of yesterday? Where were her hopes? Where were her prospects? My hopes were all dead: struck with a subtle doom as in one night fell on all the first-born of Egypt. I looked on my cherished wishes: they lay still, stark corpses that could never revive. I looked at my love: it shivered in my heart like a suffering child in a cold cradle.

Jane Eyre BBC mini series 1973 the definitive version
29 July 2005 | by (Manchester, England) – See all my reviews

I was delighted to read the positive reviews of this wonderful adaptation of Jane Eyre. I agree wholeheartedly with all the comments listed. I remember watching this series on BBC 2 in the early 1970s and was absolutely captivated. It brought the novel to life in the most magical way. At that time I was studying Jane Eyre as a text for 'O' level English Literature and it made studying the novel a real pleasure. I have never seen a better Mr Rochester or Jane Eyre and the sexual chemistry between Michael Jayston and Sorcha Cusack was electrifying to watch. I have not seen this series since that original broadcast and to the best of my knowledge it was never repeated. It was pre video recorders in our household so we have no copy of it. I would dearly love to view it again and have tried in vain to obtain a copy. The BBC have released later and in my opinion inferior versions but apparently have no plans to release this one. It is testimony to the power of those wonderful performances of more than 30 years ago that I can still remember how superb they were. Here's hoping that the BBC have a change of heart.
