Vanity Fair is a BBC television drama serial adaptation of William Makepeace Thackeray's novel of the same name broadcast in 1967 (the first drama serial in colour produced by the BBC). It starred Susan Hampshire as Becky Sharp, for which she received an Emmy Award in 1973. The serial was also broadcast in 1972 in the US on PBS television as part of Masterpiece Theatre.
The BBC would later produce another adaptation in 1987, and another in 1998. A previous version was transmitted on the BBC in 1956/7.
