Some of the greatest works of literature are transformed into motion picture we explore the greatest stories ever told on screen. Narrated by Mariella Frostrup.

Tales of love are as old as storytelling itself. From Ancient Greek tragedies, to modern bestsellers, Romance has been one of the great genres of literature, and whenever a popular romantic story is brought to the big screen, it’s eagerly anticipated. Heaven help anyone who wishes to take on a book beloved by millions.

From the oral tradition of Ancient Greece, to a paperback grabbed at the airport, nothing captures the imagination of children and adults alike more than a great adventure story, and no genre of literature was more tailor-made for film adaptation. Tales of swashbuckling heroes in far-off lands have continued to inspire the most visionary directors in cinema.

Tales of crime grab your attention like little else. The people who inhabit the criminal underworld have always made fascinating literary characters, and who hasn’t imagined themselves as an amateur detective from time to time? When there’s a case to be solved, or a villain’s plan to carry out, we’re all completely hooked.
