UKTV remembers 20 years since Pride and Prejudice
UKTV channel will replay the classic series that helped made Colin Firth an international star.
This Sunday UKTV channel will mark 20 years since Pride and Prejudice aired on television.
Andrew Davies’ adaptation of Jane Austen’s novel helped made Colin Firth an international star.
The 6 part series also stars Jennifer Ehle (The Blacklist), Allison Steadman (Orphan Black) and Julia Sawalha (Absolutely Fabulous).
Romance, pace, style, wit and passion – Jane Austin’s classic tells the story of prejudice that occurred between the 19th century classes and the pride which would keep lovers apart.
In six, hour-long episodes, the witty Elizabeth Bennet charms smouldering, haughty Darcy against a backdrop of picture-postcard countryside, small-town assembly rooms and English stately homes.
Winning 15 prestigious awards, the series and its cast has most notably won the BAFTA for Best Actress and Broadcasting Press Guild Award for Best Actor, a Primetime Emmy, a CableACE and the Banff Grand Prix.
Sundays at 8.30pm from October 18.
