BBC Four to screen Douglas Adams and D.H. Lawrence adaptations

26th August 2010

BBC Four will screen adaptations of novels by Douglas Adams and D.H. Lawrence as part of its autumn and winter schedules, it has been confirmed.

A version of Adams' work Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency will mark the first TV appearance of the character, who also appeared in the science fiction writer's novel The Long Dark Tea-time of the Soul.

Meanwhile, a new take on Lawrence's Women in Love, starring Rosamund Pike, will also combine elements of another of his classics, The Rainbow.

Discussing the channel's forthcoming line-up of programmes, BBC Four controller Richard Klein said that the schedule is both entertaining and thought-provoking.

He commented: 'From arts to performance, drama and comedy to social culture, history and science, there is programming here to satisfy the most curious and interested of minds.'

Despite the popularity of Dirk Gently, Adams is perhaps more famous for The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, which has been adapted for television and the big screen.
