Miss Austen Regrets, BBC One
Writer Gwyneth Hughes
Gwyneth Hughes trained as a newspaper journalist in the north of England, before becoming a BAFTA-nominated television documentary director, specialising in crime and history.
As a writer of TV drama, she started on ITV's police drama The Bill and BBC One's forensic crime drama Silent Witness.
She then wrote two award-winning dramatised true stories: Cherished, for the BBC, which was based on the true story of Angela Cannings, who was wrongly convicted of killing two of her children, and Mysterious Creatures, for ITV, which dealt with the story of a couple who struggle to cope with their daughter's Asperger's syndrome.
Gwyneth's other credits include the ITV drama Blood Strangers, starring Caroline Quentin and Paul McGann, which was nominated for a Prix Italia.
Her original thriller serial Five Days, which tracks five 24-hour periods following the abduction of a beautiful young mother, was shown on BBC One last year to critical acclaim and was nominated for a Golden Globe.
Gwyneth lives in North Yorkshire.
