The BBC’s lavish adaptation of ‘Pride and Prejudice’, starring Colin Firth, was eighteen months in the making and continues to captivate audiences today This indispensable companion to the series is packed with colour photographs, interviews and lavish illustrationsFollow a typical day's filming, including the wholesale transformation of Lacock village into Jane Austen's Meryton Discover how Colin Firth approaches the part of Darcy, how actors' costumes and wigs are designed and how Carl Davis recreates the period music and composes an original score Piece together the roles of behind the scenes contributors from researchers to fencing masters It is a truth universally acknowledged that a married man in possession of a small amount of spare cash and a wife's birthday coming up must be in want of a book like thisIt makes a great pressie, and is very interesting, and enlightening, and even I enjoyed it! A lovely documentation about the Making Of! Just the thing for all the fans of the series; it's hard to say which chapter is the most attractive I'd readily give five stars if it were not for the fact that many of the photos are so small that you can hardly discern what they are about; on the other hand it is great to have so many photos available in this book!I loved the chapter about the music since I love the music itself! And Darcy fans will like the interview with Colin Firth about his approach to the role and the mixed feelings that went along with it Being well soaked in all the versions of this novel that are available, and having taken the time to collect all these films on D V D and Blu Ray this along with the Keira Knightley, Matthew Macfadyen versions, nothing less than magic This book helps this fantasy world of Jane Austen along in a very pleasing way. My wife loved this so much she made me sit and watch all 6 hours of the miniseries on what turned out to be a lovely Saturday afternoon I do have to admit that it is actually a pretty clever movie and that I actually really enjoyed myself.Great product that she absolutely loved Full of facts and information that any Austen fan will enjoy. Very good book, that covers all parts of the making of the series Really get a lot of insider information from this book A good read Would recommend for Austen and BBC fans. This book allows to realize how complex and difficult filming is From script to finding locations and choosing actors, one can really appreciate the accurate and sometimes stressing work of every person of the team. This is an excellent behind the scenes look at the brilliant BBC mini series! A must buy for any P&P fanatic who's looking to expand their collection! The material is insightful and the photographs are very high quality It provides a look into the making of such big budget productions and you're left with a feeling of mad respect for artists and crew members for the efforts they put in to create a wonderful piece of art! :) If you like Jane Austen, if you loved the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice, if you are curious to know about the shoting of P&P, the selection of locations, the life of actors, you can't miss this book For me it was a page turner and I keep browsing through it when I want to have some information, and I always find it It was really fun to see how the actors look like in their normal life some of them were hardly recognisable I strongly recommend this book to all Jane Austen fans. Bellissimo libro, molto più grande di quanto immaginassi, tantissime belle foto e interviste! Momenti divertenti sul set, impagabili per una fan come me di questa serie tv!!! Lo consiglio vivamente!!
