Another season of Masterpiece Classic is upon us yet again, and this set of films promises to be just as interesting as its predecessor (last year's complete works of Jane Austen). 2009 also brings a new host: Oscar nominated Laura Linney.
The season kicks off with the haunting and powerful tale of Tess of the d'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy. Also scheduled for the 2009 line-up are new adaptations of Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights, Jane Austen's Sense & Sensibility (featured from last season - and my personal favorite) as well as four classic Charles Dickens works: Oliver Twist, David Copperfield, Little Dorrit and The Old Curiosity Shop.
Masterpiece Classic is known for creating quality films for television, such as last year's Cranford (which was later nominated for a Golden Globe). For a complete list of programs and air dates, please visit www.pbs.org. Happy viewing!
