A magazine of tourism in Great Britain
Thomas Hardy and Dorset( Visual )

8 editions published between 1988 and 2005 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The novels and poems of Hardy are set in the land of his birth, Dorset, which he called by its ancient name of Wessex. Far from the Madding Crowd, The Return of the Native, The Mayor of Casterbridge, Tess of the D'Urbervilles, Jude the Obscure all draw their characters, their daily activities, the locales in which they are set, from the farmers and farriers, shopkeepers and schoolteachers, from the towns and fields and coastline, from the sights and smells and mood of this part of England. Juxtaposing the scenes of today-barely changed from those of Hardy's day-with his poems and descriptive passages from the novels, this program provides an underpinning of the author's reality for his poetic and fictional creations
William Wordsworth and the English Lakes( Visual )

3 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The poetry of Wordsworth is filled with the landscapes of the English Lake Country, where he was born and lived almost all his life. Wordsworth was not simply a reporter or observer of this landscape, nor does this program simply illustrate his work. Rather, it walks in his footsteps, along the paths, across the fields, through daffodil-filled meadows, beneath the azure skies and lonely clouds. Perhaps the most startling benefit of this program is its lesson about Wordsworth's poetic language. Seeing the sights he saw and hearing the words with which he described them call particular attention to the simplicity of Wordsworth's language applied to landscape that is workaday for others-yet the poet's effect is music and magic
The Yorkshire of the Bronte Sisters by Films for the Humanities & Sciences (Firm)( Visual )

4 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Bronte sisters-Charlotte, Emily, and Anne-lived in Yorkshire the whole of their lives, and it is almost impossible to appreciate their work fully without knowing the landscape that forms the substance of their novels and poems. Almost every person they met, every place they visited, every scene they saw found itself in the work of one or more of the sisters. This program introduces those who have read Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights to familiar territory: Haworth and its surrounding moors, the fields and streams and lakes of Yorkshire, the house in which Charlotte worked (and hated working!) as governess and which she portrayed in Jane Eyre. In all, it provides a remarkable look at three extraordinary English women authors
