Charlotte Brontë's novel Jane Eyre (1847) has been the subject of numerous television and film adaptations. This version appeared on the A&E Television Network in 1997.

Notable for omitting the middle scenes with Mrs Reed, the Rivers' relationship to Jane, and her uncle's inheritance. But included classic lines from the novel (the piece of string, and this pure innocent woman).

Originally shown on ITV on 9 March 1997 in the UK and shown on A&E-TV on 19 October 1997 in the USA. Sometimes repeated on ITV3.
