doc­u­men­tary / BBC iplayer

meet the Janeites! Two hun­dred years af­ter Jane Austen’s death, this lovely lit­tle film in­tro­duces some of the au­thor’s su­per-fans and finds out why she is so im­por­tant to them. So­phie, 21, has amassed an im­pres­sive col­lec­tion of memorabilia (‘I could prob­a­bly open up my own mu­seum’) and is plan­ning a ball to cel­e­brate Jane; pe­riod tai­lor Zack, 22, dresses in Re­gency-style out­fits as a mat­ter of course; and Joana, pro­lific writer of Austen fan fic­tion, is ex­cited about meet­ing Amer­i­can teacher Clau­dine, who’s com­ing to Eng­land af­ter read­ing Joana’s work on­line.

So­phie, you shall go to the ball!
