These two videos were very difficult to purchase in stores and when I did find them, individually, they were about $$$ or more per video. The prices on videos from O.com are so good.

I love old novels made into a movie. It is so refreshing to see a great writers book made into a movie. The younger generation needs to see these movies and even get into reading them. It's much better for their minds than watching the violent mess that they see on tv. Schools should require kids to learn more about these wonderful books that can educate their minds so much better. Hats off to splendid movies.
This production was so much more true to the book and writing of Jane Austen. The sisters' ages were appropriate and I loved the devilish Mr. Willoughby. You won't go wrong in purchasing this wonderfully made film to add to your collection. Check out other BBC productions here. They are the best!
This was produced by Masterpiece Theatre and is a great production. The casting and acting are very good. The weird thing though is that at the end of each episode of Sense & Sensibility, it shows the previews of the next episode, just as if one were watching the film as orginally aired on PBS. This is rather distracting as there is no warning and one thinks one is missing (or has missed) something. It just seems that PBS could have put these previews into a feature separately, instead of just leaving them at the end of each episode and interrupting the continuity of the movie.
My wife & I are avid Jane Austen fans and have several versions of the various movies. This is probably the best version of Sense & Sensibility I've seen. There's one scene (where Willoughby is confronted at the ball) that in my opinion wasn't that well done. The rest of the movie though, was excellent. It definitely benefits from also being the longest version I'm aware of (3 hrs instead of 2). All in all, very well done and certainly worth the recommendation!
I have always loved Jane Austin but these movies make me love them even more! BBC does such a great job! I am definately going to give these movies as presents! I thinought that I was going to only get two movies but then I found out that they give you a bonus movie I was amazed!
This is the best buy I have found PBS is asking twice the amount for just one DVD here you get two. These are my favorite works by Jane Austin don't miss this offer. The BBC has done it again these are true to the book it makes you feel you were living in the pages of Jane's books. I can't say enough greatttttttttttttttttt!
