AUDIO: Listen To The Full Series Of Mansfield Park With David Tennant & Benedict Cumberbatch



To celebrate the 200th anniversary of the publication of Jane Austin's classic Mansfield Park BBC Radio 4 Extra have aired the 2003 dramatisation of the novel over the past two weeks

Mansfield Park centres on Fanny Price, one of nine children born to a family in financial difficulties who is sent to be raised by her wealthy aunt and uncle. David Tennant and Benedict Cumberbatch play brothers Tom and Edmund, sons of Sir Thomas and Lady Bertram, and cousins to Fanny. Of the two, Tom is the profligate gambler and character of ill-repute, but it is towards the gentle and kind Edmund that Fanny is drawn and with whom she forms a romantic attachment. Fanny struggles to be the social equal of her adoptive family and those in their circle, however, she is the moral centre of the story.
