Broadcast: 31st March 1940

A revival of one of our favorite broadcasts, Charlotte Bronte's unforgettable love story, Jane Eyre. In the last 90 years, Jane Eyre has acquired the full respectability of an English classic, and has lost none of its color. It began as one of those books that no nice person would ever read... But, with Jane Eyre appearing in England as it did, early in the reign of Queen Victoria, its shock contents made it as appalling and popular as a royal scandal and as widely circulated as gossip. An immediate success!
