5  House of Haworth (song) A celebration of the Parsonage Museum, its visitors and its venerable staff.      

6  Enoch of Warwick (spoken word) When the sisters published their first book, their Poems, only two people bought it. This is about one of them.

13  Best Selling Novel of the Season (song) Just as Charlotte’s star rose, so her world crashed down around her.

16  She Writes On (song) and creates Villette – to many people, her masterpiece.      
17  Arthur Bell Nicholls (song) aka Mr Charlotte: a much maligned figure in Brontė lore, but arguably the most dignified keeper of the flame.            
18  Joy of Brontė (song) Charlotte had enough trouble with the PR of the mid nineteenth century. How would she have coped with today’s?
