RADIO: Listen To Episode 9 Of Mansfield Park With David Tennant & Benedict Cumberbatch Today



To celebrate 200 years since the publication of Jane Austin's classic novel Mansfield Park, BBC Radio 4 Extra have been repeating the 2003 serialisation 
Today they air episode 9 of of Lin Coghlin's 10-part adaptation which stars David Tennant, Benedict Cumberbatch and Felicity Jones. 

Mansfield Park centres on Fanny Price, one of nine children born to a family in financial difficulties who is sent to be raised by her wealthy aunt and uncle. David and Benedict play brothers Tom and Edmund, sons of Sir Thomas and Lady Bertram, and cousins to Fanny. Of the two, Tom is the profligate gambler and character of ill-repute, but it is towards the gentle and kind Edmund that Fanny is drawn and with whom she forms a romantic attachment. Fanny struggles to be the social equal of her adoptive family and those in their circle, however, she is the moral centre of the story.
