A seven-volume collection of letters & journals performed in a dramatised setting.

The Letters of JANE AUSTEN performed by FIONA SHAW CBE
“Frequently indiscreet and occasionally acerbic or heartless, Jane Austen’s letters are always engaging. Fiona Shaw gives a sensitive reading.” (Daily Telegraph)

The Letters of LORD BYRON performed by ROBERT POWELL
“If you want to see into man’s soul, start with this self-portrait. It’s magnificent.” (The Guardian)

The Letters of CHARLOTTE BRONTË performed by IMOGEN STUBBS
“These provide a welcome addition to our collection of Bronteana... the reading is sympathetic and lively and makes most compelling listening.” (Bronte Society)

The Letters & Journals of LORD NELSON performed by CHARLES DANCE OBE
“Letters and journals always make lively intimate listening. It is Nelson who opens up with almost shocking frankness in courteous, suddenly passionate love letters to Emma Hamilton.” (The Independent)

Leaves from the Highland Journals of QUEEN VICTORIA performed by VIRGINIA McKENNA OBE
“...these journals offer us so many insights into the paraphernalia that accompanied the royal progress north... Virginia McKenna reads beautifully.” (Sunday Times)

Scott of the Antarctic - The Diary of Captain ROBERT FALCON SCOTT performed by EDWARD FOX OBE
“The audio’s editors have made a good selection, from the courageous good cheer and sea shanties at the beginning to the last entries, blizzard-bound in a tent 11 miles from the next depot.” (Sunday Times)

“The English countryside at the end of the 18th century is brought almost photographically before us and Jenny Agutter brings her splendidly to life.” (Good Book Guide)
