RADIO: Mansfield Park With David Tennant Continues With Episode 4 Today



The repeat of Lin Coghlin's 10-part adaptation of Mansfield Park starring David Tennant, Benedict Cumberbatch and Felicity Jones continues with episode 4 of the drama on BBC Radio 4 Extra at 2.00pm this afternoon.

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:

Amateur dramatics give Fanny Price cause for consternation.
