PART of national radio programme Front Row focusing on the Brontë family's cultural legacy has been recorded at Haworth's Parsonage Museum.

The programme is due to aired on BBC Radio Four on Monday evening.

Presenter Samira Ahmed visited the parsonage for the recording session.

Explaining her visit on her Twitter account she said: "On the trail of the infernal fantasy world of the Brontës, and it's link to modern fantasy gaming and romantic heroes..."

A spokesman for the museum said it had been "lovely" to welcome the veteran journalist, who as well as working as a BBC reporter has previously been a presenter for Channel 4.

Ms Ahmed is a winner of the Broadcast of the Year prize at the annual Stonewall Awards.

She joined BBC Front Row in 2014. Front Row is a live magazine programme dedicated to the worlds of arts, literature, film, media and music.

The Brontë Society is now staging a five-year project called Brontë200, celebrating the bicentenaries of the births of each of the Brontë siblings: Charlotte in 2016, Branwell in 2017, Emily in 2018 and Anne in 2020.

In 2019, the society will commemorate their father Patrick and the 200th anniversary of his invitation to take up his post at Haworth Parsonage.
