I'm a bit behind the curve here, but there is still plenty to watch on PBS at The Complete Jane Austen. I was reminded of this when I caught up with my New Yorker issues: Everybody Loves Jane - PBS renews its vows with the author of “Pride and Prejudice.”
I watched a deliciously funny Northanger Abbey, pretty true to the original although greatly abridged, but gave up on Miss Austen Regrets. I'm looking forward to the first installment this Sunday of Pride and Prejudice. (check your local station for day and time)

As to Jane Austen in print, I own and like most The Oxford Illustrated Jane Austen (I own the paperback version though which seems to be out of print). Overall, there is lots to choose from Jane Austen, and the Jane Austen Oxford World 's Classics series seems to be the best bet. Also a joy to read are Jane Austen's Letters and Jane Austen: A Life by renowned biographer Claire Tomalin.
