BBC Season of Classic Literature

Published April 30, 2014 Posted by
This season on the BBC, writers and directors have taken on four big classic works: Jed Mercurio’s adaptation of DH Lawrence’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover, Ben Vanstone’s adaptation of Laurie Lee’s novel Cider With Rosie, Adrian Hodges' adaptation of LP Hartley’s The Go-Between and J B Priestley’s classic play An Inspector Calls. Each have been made into 90-minute adaptations. Read more on the BBC website and from John Plunkett on The Guardian. Though not everyone is pleased with this; check out Mof Gimmers's article on Anorak.
