Maxine Peake (Shameless, Little Dorrit) stars in a profoundly moving drama based on the real diaries of Anne Lister: a landowning woman who defied the conventions of her 19th century life to great scandal.

Set in the small, elite world of high society at a time when lesbianism was just not tolerated, The Secret Diaries of Miss Anne Lister is an inspiring story of 'the first modern lesbian' - a woman who challenged convention and was determined to simply be herself. Anne kept a detailed account of her life, loves and emotions in a fascinating and painfully honest four million word journal. A sizeable portion of the journal was written in code and the recent deciphering of these diaries has provided an astonishing insight into Anne's captivating life.

This beautiful and compelling drama examines the life of Anne, the young heiress to the 400 acre Shibden Hall Estate, who has fallen for the beautiful and enigmatic Marianne. As soon as Anne is alone with the beautiful Marianna Belcombe, their passion for each other is all too obvious. For Anne, this is her soul mate, the woman she wants to share her life with.

But when it is announced that Marianna is to be married to the wealthy, corpulent and older Mr Lawton, Anne is distraught. In a desperate attempt to forget Marianna, Anne throws herself into academic study. It is not long however before her libido gets the better of her and she begins a string of affairs, most notably with the wealthy heiress Ann Walker. Anne feels she can never love anyone as deeply as she has Marianna, but when the two are 'outed', Ann Walker proves a strong and supportive partner, willing to live as 'husband and wife'. Should Anne sacrifice real love for the chance to live freely and proudly as a lesbian?
  • Diaries of Anne Lister: A documentary with comedy writer and presenter Sue Perkins telling the story of Anne Lister and the decoding of her diaries.

This is a must see for any lesbian (or non lesbian too for that matter). It's a heart warming story of a woman who isn't afraid to live "against the rules" and love whomever she wants.
