Masterpiece Theatre can be tricky. So you'll need to double check with your local listings of course for air times and dates, but I did find the schedule for The Complete Jane Austen airing in the Spring of 2008.
Persuasion (January 13, 2008)
Northanger Abbey (January 20, 2008)
Mansfield Park (January 27, 2008)
Miss Austen Regrets (February 3, 2008)
Pride and Prejudice (February 10, 2008 through February 24) (Will be shown in three parts)
Emma (March 23, 2008)
Sense and Sensibility (March 30, 2008 and April 6, 2008)
Here are the participants for the Jane Austen Mini-Challenge.
(The original post announcing it is here. The goal of this challenge is to read and/or watch at least two Jane Austen novels/movies in 2008. Masterpiece Theatre is showing all 6 movies in the 2008 season. I am going to be aiming for all 6. But if you want to just watch two movies and blog about them, that is fine too. It would still be participating. For those that may not get PBS, rent (or buy) two Austen movies--any version--and you'll still qualify as a participant. Want to read an Austen biography as a substitute for one of the novels, go for it. Or watch Becoming Jane as a substitute for one of the movies. I'll allow it. Just read two Austen-related books. OR watch two Austen-related movies. You can always read more or watch more. What about audio books? Sure. Listening would count as well. Whatever you want. It's supposed to be fun.
It is not too late to join in on this one. It officially starts in January. But I won't be rigid with the sign up date or anything :) When you sign up either at this post or on the original, I'll add you to the list.
And in case anyone lives in Canada...here is what I found out...
The North American premieres of ITV’s Northanger Abbey, Mansfield Park, and Persuasion can be seen on TVOntario (TVO) in December 2007, a month before PBS’ Complete Jane Austen begins:And it appears that Jane Austen will get air time in Australia too in 2008.
16 December ….. Northanger Abbey
23 December ….. Mansfield Park
30 December ….. Persuasion
All three films will air Sunday nights starting at 9:00 p.m.
