The Diary Of Anne Frank - BBC One, Monday 5 to Friday 9 January 2009, 7.00-7.30pm
BBC One presents a new adaptation of The Diary Of Anne Frank which will be shown in five episodes on consecutive nights in early January.
Anne Frank started to write her diary on her 13th birthday in June 1942, just two weeks before she and her family were forced to go into hiding in Nazi occupied Holland.
Written from the cramped conditions of an annexe in her father's spice warehouse, Anne's poignant, feisty and often very funny account of her life over a two-year period has become the most widely read piece of non-fiction – apart from the Bible.
The drama stars Ellie Kendrick, Iain Glen, Tamsin Greig, Felicity Jones, Kate Ashfield, Ron Cook, Lesley Sharp, Geoff Breton and Nicolas Farrell.
The Diary Of Anne Frank has been adapted by Deborah Moggach and is a Darlow Smithson production for BBC One.
The series has been directed by Jon Jones and produced by Elinor Day.
The Executive Producer and Commissioning Editor for the BBC is Polly Hill.
