Series: The Secret Diaries Of Miss Anne Lister

The Secret Diaries of Miss Anne Lister was a one-off BBC drama that aired in May 2010. The title character was a Victorian industrialist and businesswoman and is considered to be the first modern lesbian. The programme mostly details her affair with her relationship with her girlfriend, Mariana and her ex/best friend, Tib. Things don't get off to a good start, since after the exposition the plot the sucker punches Anne with the announcement of Mariana's engagement to Charles, an older wealthy landowner.
