Old-fashioned views still relevant

Pride and Prejudice

Jane Austen

Pride and Prejudice, probably Jane Austen's best-loved novel, is the story of a young woman's search for love and happiness.

Although it was written more than 200 years ago, it is still relevant, as a study both of society and relationships between family members, and men and women.

Austen's world tailor-made for HK audience

Pride and Prejudice

For two evenings, 19th century England came to rural Tai Po, complete with curtsies, sedate baroque music and sumptuous period costumes.

Pride and Prejudice, the classic novel by Jane Austen, is a love story almost 200 years old. But its latest screen adaptation is neither dated nor dull thanks to a sparkling performance by British actress Keira Knightley.

A shot of escapism

Just when you think you have seen all the Jane Austen you can bear, along comes Emma. While not as famous a character as her Sense and Sensibility or Pride and Prejudice sisters, Emma still bears all the hallmarks of an Austen heroine: she is sweet, she is intrinsically good, she makes a few well-intentioned mistakes.

Sunny summer days

It always amazes me that the creators of such wonderful costume dramas as Pride And Prejudice (Pearl, 9.30pm) can find enough sunshine in the grey English countryside to bring us so many unfailingly bright summer scenes.

Perhaps they fit a yellow filter to the cameras or the sets are somehow computer created.

When it was shown in England last year Pride And Prejudice (Pearl, 9.30pm) pulled in an audience of 20 million, about 40 per cent of the population. Some might have been inquisitive to find out what producer Sue Birtwistle meant when she said the series (showing in six parts in Hong Kong) was a 'bit of a bodice-ripper'.

Traditionally, women can propose on February 29. Should they?

YES There is no way on God's earth that I am getting down on my knees in front of any woman, apart from with the express purpose of nuzzling her inner thighs. A hideous vision for many of you out there, no doubt, but there it is. I don't have to beg for anything - apart from a cigarette once in a while.
