Episode 1

Duration: 1 hour

First broadcast: on BBC One WestLatest broadcast: on BBC Four

Adaptation of the Jane Austen classic by Bafta award-winning writer Sandy Welch.

Nothing delights Emma more than meddling in the love lives of others. But when she takes protégé Harriet Smith under her wing, her plans can only end in disaster.

A sumptuous, playful and witty new adaptation of Jane Austen's comic masterpiece from the pen of Bafta award-winning writer Sandy Welch.

Rich, independent and kind-spirited, Emma Woodhouse has no need to marry, but nothing delights her more than matchmaking those around her. Once she has married off her close companions, she alights upon the pretty Harriet Smith to fashion into her new playmate and ally.

She persuades Harriet that she is too good for her suitor, the farmer Robert Martin, and encourages her to set her sights higher. But close family friend Mr Knightley warns Emma that her meddling will cause great pain - to both Robert and Harriet. Emma refuses to listen, and Mr Knightley is furious at Emma's stubbornness.
