In Search of the Brontes

Format

Summary
The story of three sisters, their precocious creativity, the scandalous reputations they sought to subvert and the mythical legacy they deliberately left behind. It is a story of alcoholism and illness, of thwarted passion and unrequited love, and of a 19th-century quest for fame. When people think of the Brontes, they think of emotionally fragile young women on windswept moors, beset by family tragedy, channelling their pent-up emotions into some of the most passionate and enduring novels of the 19th Century. All of this is entirely accurate - but it is not the whole truth. This two-part documentary shatters the myths that have surrounded the sisters since their untimely deaths 150 years ago and sets the record straight.
