Summary
Writer and actress Sheila Hancock has long been fascinated by the life and works of the Brontë sisters. In this programme, she searches for an answer to a puzzling question: "How did three spinsters who spent most of their lives in a remote parsonage on the edge of the moors come to write books so shocking, erotic, profoundly moving and quite wonderful?" Hancock embarks on a journey that starts in the Yorkshire village of Haworth and the brutal moors that inspired Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights. She moves on to Brussels, where Charlotte Brontë developed the writing style that made Jane Eyre an enduring masterpiece and examines the nature of Charlotte and Constantin Heger's seemingly romantic relationship. She ends in Scarborough, the last resting place of Anne Brontë whose Tenant of Wildfell Hall has feminist themes
