Wuthering Heights: A radio adaptation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A radio adaptation of Emily Brontë’s Novel Wuthering Heights commissioned by the BBC for the Radio 4 Woman’s Hour series. This adaptation is spread over fifteen episodes and deliberately gives the second half of the book as much time as the more popular first half. This version has also deliberately embraced the medium of radio, hence the house ‘Wuthering Heights’ has been given a voice. Hopefully this brings the world of the book directly into the mind of the listener, with all the brooding passion, cruelty, and darkness it contains. It is a novel of extremes, love and hate, hell and heaven, life and death, man and beast it is also about breaking boundaries and promises. I hope by paring the book back to its bones I have managed to capture some of this in its new form.
