Summary
By 1844, the Brontes have lived through many trials and tribulations but they have no idea of the tragedy that is still to come. Charlotte, Emily and Anne retreat to Haworth parsonage following unsuccessful periods working as governesses. Threatened by financial penury and encouraged by the determined and ambitious Charlotte, the three sisters turn their hands to writing novels. Charlotte's Jane Eyre, Anne's Agnes Grey and Emily's Wuthering Heights cause a literary storm when they are eventually published. But this literary success is accompanied by a string of tragic events which leaves the Bronte family desolate and broken. The programme reveals how the sisters' brother, Branwell, is destroyed by a disastrous love affair and descends into depression and alcoholism; how critical censure of Emily's first novel,Wuthering Heights, possibly causes the destruction of the manuscript of her second; and how consumption ravages the family, leaving only the father, Reverend Patrick Bronte, in its wake.
