On TV: Jane Austen Bio and P&P

A&E will be showing Jane Austen's biography this Friday, August 26 @ 7am ET/PT.
A look at the life of the British author whose imagination produced some of literature's greatest stories. Jane Austen (1775-1817) wrote two literary classics--"Sense and Sensibility" and "Pride and Prejudice"--before she turned 21. And although she never married, she led a happy and active life, seemingly untouched by the dramatic incidents that filled her characters' lives.
In the past, when the airing of her bio has coincided with a Jane-friendly movie, there have been scenes from the movie included in the bio. This was the case last year with Bride & Prejudice. So, this will probably be an opportunity to see scenes of P&P3. Also, A&E classroom will be airing its 6 part Pride & Prejudice miniseries on January 18-25, 2006. The P&P teacher guide is here.
