Chronicling eighteen months of work- from the original concept to the first broadcast – this book brings vividly to life the challenges and triumphs involved in every stage of production of this sumptuous television series.
Follow a typical day’s filming, what Colin Firth thinks of Mr. Darcy, how actor’s wigs and costumes were designed, how authentic dances are rehearsed, and how Carl Davis recreates the period music and composes an original score.
Includes many exclusive full colour photographs, interviews, and lavish illustrations, The Making of Pride & Prejudice is an indispensable companion to the beautifully produced series and a fascinating insight into all aspects of a major television enterprise.
