BBC1's Autumn Schedule Just Released

We have confirmation that Jane Eyre will be included on time in the BBC's autumn schedule. The program has still not moved up on the BBC's Coming Up Drama website, but this has also been confirmed elsewhere. The schedule itself is currently elusive, however, schedules from last year have been available as early as the first week of August so we should have some airdates soon. Other productions slated for the same schedule already have their webpages running on the BBC website. We'll be keeping an eye out for that as well. The BBC often post clips from their upcoming productions, as they did with North and South.

ETA: Here's an example of what we can expect in terms of a website. This is the website for BBC One's Autumn production of Robin Hood which has been developing alongside Jane Eyre. I'm guessing that when the site does go online, it's adress will be: http://www.bbc.co.uk/drama/janeeyre/ Just a guess, you know.

Yay! One thing I would say though is that the website is more likely going to be like Bleak House's than Robin Hood's. Robin Hood is a family drama to fit the Doctor Who timeslot and therefore the website will be family-aimed and will probably feature lots of extra content and games - Jane Eyre is more likely to have production diaries and video interviews at a guess. :)

That'll be the web address though almost certainly. Expect promotional features to appear on BBC One's breakfast show and possibly on Sunday AM (the latter of which is net broadcast) just before broadcast.

Yes, me too!!! I hope they include some...for young adults and older at least ;) At least they should have quizzes and a message board!

I would expect a message board of some description (more like a comments page - IIRC message board services have been cut by and large).

I can't wait for the "douse Mr Rochester" game. ;)

...Hmn. We could have a game where you had to escape the icy clutches of cold hearted curates that want to sacrifice you in India ;)

That's a fun game, the dousing Mr Rochester game. Makes him ornry though. Which is where the decode the fulminated anathema game comes in!

I'd love a game that resembles the Charles Dickens one they have at the moment!

to marshalsea:

Dare I ask, what kind of game it is?

Thank you for the link! That was very interesting, and you know, that was Charlotte's London as well.
