BBC Radio 4 and the Brontës

A reminder from Parsonage Director Alan Bentley:

Today at 2.15pm BST -

Afternoon Play - I Believe I Have Genius

This play by Judith Adams (who was Education Officer at the Parsonage a few years ago) is based on the writings and letters of Charlotte Brontë, describing her experiences when she travelled to Brussels, as humble and obscure as the heroines of her later novels.

This should be available to listen to on the BBC website (Listen Again) for the next seven days.


On Friday 18 April at 15:00 BST

Ramblings - Clare Balding explores routes with connections to the past.

She strides out across the moors behind Haworth in the footsteps of the Brontës with Ann Dinsdale and Judith Bland. They intend to walk to Top Withins, thought to be the inspiration for Wuthering Heights, but they wander a little off course and in doing so forge a much stronger connection to the famous sisters.

Available online at the BBC's Listen Again.
