The romance between two of Hollywood's brightest ever stars Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor still captivates the hearts of romantics to this day.

As Kevin Leonard reports on the BBC Wales News website today, rumours are afoot that a film could be made on their turbulent relationship based on a book by Sam Kashner and Nancy Schoenberger - Furious Love: Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, and the Marriage of the Century.
