Women In Love adapted for TV

3rd December 2009

Two seminal novels will be adapted for the screen as part of a new BBC Four season exploring sexuality and love in 20th century literature.

D.H. Lawrence's Women In Love will be adapted by Billy Ivory, while Amanda Coe will create a new screen version of Room At The Top by John Braine.

The Women In Love adaptation will also include elements of its sequel The Rainbow, which is the first time the two books have been combined on television.

Richard Klein, controller of BBC Four, said: 'Modern adaptations are a new direction for drama on the channel and I'm delighted to bring alive for viewers these iconic, but sometimes overlooked, classic novels.'

He also pointed out that the 20th century saw an 'enormous change' in how men and women related to each other and the new season will allow viewers to explore how this was dealt with in literature.

Last week, the BBC and the British Museum unveiled a unique collaboration to tell the story of two million years of human history through 100 objects.
