The BBC have today released promotional pictures for The Go Between. Adapted from L P Hartley’s novel of the same name, it makes up the quartet of classic literature that the BBC have adapted as part of their 20th Century Literature season. The others are Lady Chatterley’s Lover, An Inspector Calls and Cider With Rosie. The Go-Between follows Leo Colston, who as an elderly man pieces together his childhood memories after finding his diary from 1900, which he wrote when he was 13 years old. A nostalgic tale about lost innocence, The Go-Between paints beautiful pictures of British life, humanity and social hierarchy at the beginning of the 20th century.
The cast includes Jim Broadbent, Vanessa Redgrave, Joanna Vanderham (The Paradise, Dancing On The Edge, Banished), Stephen Campbell Moore (The History Boys, Hunted, Titanic), Ben Batt (Shameless, From There To Here, Scott And Bailey) and Lesley Manville (Maleficent, Another Year, Mayday) in the 90-minute adaptation of LP Hartley’s novel. The production also stars Jack Hollington as the young protagonist, Leo; Jack Cutmore-Scott and Samuel Joslin. The Go-Between has been adapted by Adrian Hodges and is directed by Pete Travis (Endgame, Legacy, Omagh)
The Go Between will air on BBC One on the 20th of September from 8:30pm to 10:00pm. With thanks to BBC Media.
