Wolf Hall Author Hilary Mantel’s A Place of Greater Safety Being Adapted by BBC

91WGadgWAQL__SL1500_Hilary Mantel’s epic novel of the French Revolution, A Place of Greater Safety, is said to be in the early stages of adaptation by the BBC.

A Place of Greater Safety tells the story of – Georges-Jacques Danton: zealous, energetic and debt-ridden. Maximilien Robespierre: small, diligent and terrified of violence. And Camille Desmoulins: a genius of rhetoric, charming and handsome, yet also erratic and untrustworthy. As these young men, key figures of the French Revolution, taste the addictive delights of power, the darker side of the period’s political ideals is unleashed – and all must face the horror that follows.

Put this to music and Les Miserables comes to mind!

In Wolf Hall , which was recently aired in the UK on the BBC, Hilary Mantel brings the opulent, brutal world of the Tudors to bloody, glittering life. It is the backdrop to the rise and rise of Thomas Cromwell: lowborn boy, charmer, bully, master of deadly intrigue and, finally, most powerful of Henry VIII’s courtiers.
