Oh no! I'm terrible at guessing theme songs even though I love music from the period dramas. I heard some really familiar ones, though.

8 Emma
11 North and South

I'll comment again if ever I can recognize any of the other songs.

Abby,
So glad you enjoyed this quiz! Five of your guesses were correct! You guess on #8 was incorrect. Thanks for playing!

Anne-girl,
Five of your guesses were correct (clips #2, 6, 8, 13 and 15)! Your other guesses were unfortunately incorrect. Each clip is from a different period drama. Thank you so much for playing! :)

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Miss Dashwood,
You correctly guessed 8 of the clips! The clips you guessed correctly are 2, 6, 8, 10, 11, 13, 14 and 15 (love that one too!). Feel free to guess again on the others if they sound familiar. Clip #4 should be familiar to you and maybe #1. So glad you enjoyed the game! :)

Ana Smith,

Livia said...

So, I have not seen famous period dramas like Northanger Abbey, but I have seen plenty and still cannot name most of these! The three I am most positive about will go first.
8 2008 Emma with Jonny Lee Miller
13 and 4. 1995 Pride and Prejudice miniseries
3. 2008 Sense and Sensibility?
1. I know I have heard it! Titanic???
6. 2008 Emma?
10. and ll. Oh, I should know these!
14. Sense and Sensibility with Winslet, Grant, and Thompson?

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Ella,
I'm counting all of your guesses together. Seven of you guesses were absolutely correct! You put a guess that fits #13 but when you guessed you numbered it as being #14. I'm going to give that one to you anyway because you guessed the right period drama just numbered it wrong. So your total score is 8 correct! :)

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Lauren,
You correctly guessed 8 clips! Good work! And on #5, you are correct, the theme from that period drama is used in a BBC drama preview! Your guess for #14 was incorrect. I'm so glad you enjoyed play! :)

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Melody,
All 10 of your new guesses were correct! So your total score now is 13 correct. You probably haven't seen #7 or #12, I was quite surprised you recognized #5 but maybe from my YouTube page. Yes, I saved the best for last! Your comment made me laugh so much, so many exclamation marks and capital letter! So glad you have fun playing! :D

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Livia,
You correctly guessed #8 and #13 but unfortunately your other guesses were incorrect. The period drama you guessed for #3 does feature somewhere in this game. Thanks for playing!

Miss Dashwood said...

Ooh, I just remembered where I heard #1 before! (No, I did not visit your YouTube page... though I was tempted to...) It's Nicholas Nickleby, right? My dad's currently watching that in bits and pieces when he's exercising. :)
Still unsure about #3, though I think I've heard it before.
Oh! Oh! #4 is Wives and Daughters, isn't it? Please, please say yes! (Ha, I think I'm getting a little overexcited).
Is it just me, or are the themes from Lark Rise and Wives and Daughters very similar?
I've never heard #12 before, to the best of my knowledge, but from the sound of it I'm going to hazard a guess that it's from Horatio Hornblower. It just sounds nautical. :P

Miss Dashwood said...

I also just wanted to say... this is such a fun game! You are very creative. Thanks a bunch for posting it!

Melody said...

Okay, last guesses from little old me!

7. Downton Abbey
And 12 is a complete guess: The Way We Live Now.

I have seen 5! (HKHWR?) =) Twice, in point of fact.

Anonymous said...

2. Cranford
3. Jane Eyre

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Miss Dashwood,
Your guess on #4 was correct so you score is brought up to 9 correct. Your guesses for #1 and #12 were incorrect, sorry! You're very welcome for the game! It was really so much fun to make the video and not too hard because I had the clips already. But putting together the video with the words was a bit time consuming. A labor of love really! :)

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Melody,
Excellent guesses on #7 and #12! You got all 15 now! :)
That's neat about #5! I didn't know you'd seen that one before. I like it because it actually has some very interesting stories in it! :)

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Bethany (Anonymous),
