One of My Favourite’s of Mansfield Park

Very poor ending, cuts out Fanny’s jubilation of getting her man which this story is all about & what ‘we’ are all waiting for. However; apart from that huge hick up, this version is still one of my favourites & well worth a listen.

Well done

This dramatized version differentiates the characters well, and they don't sound incongruous. The only thing is, I always liked the Fanny/Edmund pairing, and this version had me rooting for Henry! It's just a time period thing - back in the day if you blotted your character you had destroyed your life; today we feel that a person can change their life with the right motivation.

Abridged version but an excellent performance

Mansfield Park is a favorite, and while this version is abridged (by half at a guess), the performances and acting are excellent. I own another abridged, read version, but enjoy having this performed (for radio?) one as well.
