RADIO: Mansfield Park With David Tennant & Benedict Cumberbatch Starts Today



A rare repeat of Lin Coghlin's 10-part adaptation of Mansfield Park starring David Tennant, Benedict Cumberbatch and Felicity Jones starts on BBC Radio 4 Extra at 2.00pm this afternoon.
The series will continue with a new episode every weekday for two weeks.

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.


In today's episode:
On a quest to find a position in society, young Fanny Price goes to live with her rich aunt and uncle.
