He’s the man behind such TV gems as Pride and Prejudice and War and Peace - as well as the first two Bridget Jones movies. Andrew Davies’ latest offering - the six-part dramatisation of Victor Hugo’s 19th century classic Les Misérables - aired earlier this year adds another gem to an already glittering CV. In a half-century long career, the Cardiff-born writer has penned well over 100 works across TV, radio, film, stage and print, and has picked up Emmys and four Baftas, for his work. He’ll be sharing how he dissects and rebuilds some of the greatest works of literature and redefines them for the screen.
