Man­tel’s Booker Prizewin­ning novel Wolf Hall is be­ing adapted for TV. BBC2 boss Jan­ice Had­low says the book, about Henry VIII’s ad­viser Thomas Cromwell, was ‘‘a great con­tem­po­rary novel, a great adaptation’’. Mak­ing the an­nounce­ment at the Ed­in­burgh In­ter­na­tional Tele­vi­sion Fes­ti­val, Had­low said the chan­nel was ‘‘very for­tu­nate to have the rights’’ to the best­seller. Wolf Hall is set in the 1520s and tells the story of Cromwell’s rise to promi­nence in the Tudor court.
