The Dark Adapted Eye: The challenges of taking crime books to the screen

Fiona Eagger, Dee McLachlan and Vikki Petraitis talk to Senior Professor Sue Turnbull about staying true to the source as it is adapted to the medium of film or television. What strategies are involved?  How do pictures, music, sound, and colour combine to tell a complex story that was originally told only in words? What stays and what goes? And is there a role for the author?
