Pre-order the DVD of Jane Eyre 2006

The DVD is apparently set for a February 5th 2007 release in the UK. It can be pre-ordered from this website. Thank you Bernard Sylvie for the tip!

Ruth Wilson, as Jane Eyre, and Toby Stephens, as Edward Rochester, lead a stellar cast in a compelling new adaptation of Charlotte Brontë's much-loved novel Jane Eyre. Orphaned at a young age, Jane is placed in the care of her wealthy aunt Mrs Reed, who neglects her in favour of her own three spoiled children. Jane is branded a liar, and Mrs Reed sends her to the grim and joyless Lowood School where she stays until she is 19. Determined to make the best of her life, Jane takes a position as a governess at Thornfield Hall, the home of the alluring and unpredictable Edward Rochester. It is here that Jane's journey into the world, and as a woman, begins. Writer Sandy Welch (North And South, Magnificent Seven), producer Diederick Santer (Shakespeare Retold – Much Ado About Nothing) and director Susanna White (Bleak House) join forces to bring this ever-popular tale of passion, colour, madness and gothic horror to BBC ONE.

When I interviewed the producer he said he was planning on including a lot of extras, so a long wait sounds good to me! Among other things, he suggested commentaries and interviews (although nothing has been confirmed yet- these were only planned the last I heard of it).

That's what I told myself....the longer the wait, the more goodies on the DVDs -- so good to hear that confirmed!
