Tonight on BBC2: Jane Austen: Behind Closed Doors

Lucy Worsley

I’m a huge Lucy Worsley fan. I’ve seen just about every program she’s done and I’m eagerly awaiting the release of her book this summer, Jane Austen at Home: A Biography.

Imagine my delight, then, to discover she has a new program out tonight, Jane Austen: Behind Closed Doors:

Now, in a fresh take on Jane Austen, Lucy Worsley traces the houses Jane lived in to show just how much they influenced her work. Embarking on a road trip across England Lucy visits properties that still exist – and uses clever detective work to bring to life those that have disappeared.

The show is set to air tonight in the UK on BBC2 but let’s hope it’ll come to PBS this summer.
