Product Description

Based on the inspiring true story of   Anne Lister, the first modern lesbian' − a woman who challenged convention and was determined to simply be herself -  what makes this  sumptuous BBC production so remarkable is that it is derived directly from the actual diaries of the real Anne. Maxine Peake stars as Anne Lister, a landowning woman in Britain who defied the conventions of her 19th century life to great scandal. Anne was a lesbian and her affair with Marianna Belcombe kept society guessing, but when it's announced that Marianna is to marry old, corpulent and wealthy Charles Lawton, Anne is distraught. But Anne eventually meets Ann Walker who becomes her new 'wife' and they open a coal-mine, living happily together. You can also read the original book which this is based on.
