Anne Lister – diaries & discoveries

Been saving up for quite some time some YouTube “finds” on Anne Lister, her diaries, her life &c.

Anne Lister (14:06) presented by JAN BRIDGET  in 2014; includes a tour of Shibden Hall, information on author/editor Helena Whitbread, and later books and films. Bridget also has presented a shorter (10:00) film.

DID YOU KNOW?

  • Anne Lister’s diaries run to “about 4 million words”, making it “about 3 times as long” as Samuel Pepys’ diaries.
  • one-sixth is written in her own code.

The 2010 film, The Secret Diaries of Miss Anne Lister might go away, but I’ll give one instance that I have found (though not sure it’s the one I watched). I found it a lovely film, and feel that Anne-fans will want to own a copy.

Anne Lister’s last steps (1:19:32) – from summer 2016, Dr. ANGELA STEIDELE discusses Anne Lister’s travels, including her last trip abroad.
