Mantel's 'Wolf Hall' to be TV Mini-Series

The BBC has announced production of a new six part adaptation of Hilary Mantel's Booker prize-winning novel - Wolf Hall.

Set in England in the 1520s, the story centres around the life of Thomas Cromwell, who rose from humble beginnings - as the son of a brutal blacksmith - to become  Henry VIII's chief minister.

The series will show a nation on the brink of disaster and civil war, and a Court filled with betrayals, alliances, affairs and scheming.

Although not directly featured himself as a character, the novel is permeated throughout by the influence and repercussions of William Tyndale's Bible translation.
