Repost from @drlauravarnam Exciting news!!! The Daphne du Maurier documentary will have its UK TV premiere this week!! A bilingual film made for the European culture channel Arte in 2017, the English version, called ‘In Rebecca’s Footsteps’, will be shown on a UK freeview channel called PBS America on Wednesday 20th February at 9pm (freeview channel 91, Freesat 155, Virgin Media 276, Sky channel 160) Edited to add that it may also be available online via Amazon on demand (Thanks Ellie for the heads up!)⭐️
The film features gorgeous footage of Fowey, photographs, archive materials, and interviews with Daphne’s biographer Tatiana de Rosnay (‘Manderley Forever’), her eldest daughter Lady Tessa Montgomery, and a number of Du Maurier experts including myself and my dear friend Ann Willmore, owner of Bookends of Fowey. ⭐️
Directed by Elisabeth Schlumberger and produced by Patricia Houtart, ‘In Rebecca’s Footsteps’ is an enchanting and engrossing portrait of one of the twentieth century’s most important writers.
I hope it will be available to watch where you are! (Edited to note that the documentary is also available as part of the special features on the Criterion DVD of Hitchcock’s Rebecca in the US)
