More book adaptations to feature in BBC 4's spring/summer arts schedule

1st April 2011

An adaptation of John Braine's novel Room at the Top is among the highlights of BBC Four's programme for spring/summer 2011.

The channel's fiction and arts coverage will also feature a reappraisal of the work of playwright Terence Rattigan, with a documentary focusing on the author's canon.

Meanwhile, the impact of The 1001 Arabian Nights will be assessed by actor Richard E. Grant in a separate programme.

Performance arts will be represented in the channel's spring/summer schedule with the launch of a weekend devoted to contemporary dance.

BBC Four controller Richard Klein said the channel continues to be curious about the way the world works.

He said: 'BBC Four provides enriching television for the discerning viewer, and this season is no exception, bursting with purpose, proposition and passion.'

The channel also confirmed this week that 2012 will see the launch of further adaptations of Douglas Adams' Dirk Gently books.
