1/2/81: Sense and Sensibility (BBC TV Series)

On Sunday 1 February 1981 BBC One began showing a new adaptation of the Jane Austen novel Sense and Sensibility.

The series, which ran for seven episodes, was adapted from the novel by Alexander Baron and directed by Rodney Bennet. It starred Tracey Childs as Marianne Dashwood and Irene Richard as Elinor.

The website austinprose.com called the series "a solid but flawed adaptation of Jane Austen’s masterpiece". Sense and Sensibility was adapted for television again by the BBC in 2008.
