Saturday Night at the Movies - Saturday 11 July 2015, 5pm

Great literary adaptations are on the menu this evening.

Go Set A Watchman, the highly anticipated follow-up to Harper Lee’s much-loved book To Kill A Mockingbird, is being published on Tuesday 14 July, so this week Andrew is devoting the show to the best big and small screen adaptations of literary favourites.

Listen out for classics such as Pride and Prejudice through to contemporary masterpieces including Life of Pi and Wolf Hall.

There'll be music from Game of Thrones, as well as a particular nod to attempts to film the most ‘unfilm-able’ books and adaptations of recent publishing blockbusters such as 50 Shades of Grey.
