Shirley Hughes, The Skriker, Adapting novels for the screen, The Choir

Shirley Hughes has been illustrating and writing books for children for more than 50 years, including the classics Dogger and the Alfie series. On the day she receives a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Book Trust she discusses her working process and how she's reflected changes over the years in her work. When Caryl Churchill's play The Skriker premiered at the National Theatre in 1994, it left the critics dazed and confused. So much so that it's taken 20 years for the play to be staged again in this country. Now it's one of the centrepiece productions of the Manchester International Festival. Charlotte Keatley reviews. Sadie Jones has just adapted her novel The Outcast as a three-hour BBC1 drama, and Deborah Moggach is currently writing the screenplay of her latest novel Something to Hide for the big screen. Both authors discuss the pros and cons of adapting one's own novel for the screen, and what it's like when another writer is hired to do the job. The Choir is a new film in which a young boy from a tough neighbourhood suddenly finds himself at one of the most elite private 'boychoir' schools in the country where he faces a tough time trying to come up to scratch under the demands of the headteacher, played by Dustin Hoffman. Antonia Quirke reviews. Presenter John Wilson Producer Rebecca Nicholson.…read more
