Adapting Emile Zola

BBC Radio Drama

Venue: BBC Tent

Blood, Sex and Money was an ambitious, innovative adaptation on Radio 4 of Emile Zola’s epic saga about the Rougon-Macquart family.  The drama set in 19th-century France mashed up 20 novels into 27 episodes, featured more than a hundred cast members and saw the return to acting after 20 years of Glenda Jackson. Illustrated with clips from the series, adaptor Dan Rebellato and executive producer Sue Roberts reveal the highs and lows of bringing this award-winning epic to our airwaves.
