Writer and actress Sheila Hancock has long been fascinated by the life and works of the Brontë sisters.

Hancock embarks on a journey that starts in the Yorkshire village of Haworth and the brutal moors that inspired Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights.

She ends in Scarborough, the last resting place of Anne Brontë whose Tenant of Wildfell Hall has feminist themes
