New Show Profiles the Brontë Sisters
Beloved novelists Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brontë shook the literary world with some of the most controversial fiction of the 1840s. Because of the time period, the Brontë sisters were forced to write under a collective pseudonym known as the Bell brothers. But, what gave them the inspiration to craft some of the world’s most spectacular literature? Find out this Sunday, March 26, at 9pm when To Walk Invisible: The Brontë Sisters premieres on ThinkTV16 and CET.
Based largely upon Charlotte Brontë’s extensive letters, To Walk Invisible covers the three-year span where the sisters went from unmarried women taking care of their widowed father’s household to the legendary writers they have become today. The sisters are played by a talented cast made up of: Finn Atkins from Jane Eyre, Chloe Pirrie from War and Peace, and Charlie Murphy from Happy Valley. To Walk Invisible was filmed entirely in Halworth, a beautiful Yorkshire village where the Brontë sisters originally resided.
Interestingly enough, the Brontë sisters got their pseudonym, Bell, from a new set of bells installed on their father’s church in Haworth. This would have been a significant event for the small town of Haworth in the 1800s.
To Walk Invisible: The Brontë Sisters airs at 9pm Sunday, March 26, on CET and ThinkTV16.
