The BBC4 schedule for next Tuesday is up online. Episode 1 of Pride and Prejudice is showing from 7.00-7.55pm and Episode 2 from 8.35-9.30pm. Oddly, Pride and Prejudice Revisited is screening thrice: at 9.30-10.00pm, 11.05-11.35pm and 3.40-4.10am.

The following is the description of the documentary from the site.

Ten years on from the BBC's iconic series, BBC FOUR looks at the enduring appeal of Jane Austen's scathing social satire.

Novelists, screenwriters and film directors, including Deborah Moggach, Andrew Davies, Claire Tomalin and Gurinder Chadha explore how Jane Austen's mixture of romance, wit and scathing social satire has earned it a central place in our culture, and why it lends itself so perfectly to adaptation.

[edit: there are TWO documentaries on Pride and Prejudice screening that night, Revisited and another one on BBC1 at 10.35pm specifically on the 1995 mini-series. More details and a recap of Tuesday night viewing can be found at the new post above]

Does anyone know if it will be possible to watch it on the internet? (Does BBC have internet-tv??)
