Book-to-screen adaptations - love them or hate them?

Life journalists Olivia Ho and Toh Wen Li discuss them in this month's podcast, as Game Of Thrones wraps up on HBO and Good Omens, the long-awaited mini-series based on Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman's Armageddon comedy, arrives.

They size up the best and worst adaptations out there - from actors playing multiple characters in Cloud Atlas to the failure of the 2005 Pride And Prejudice film, to why Brad Pitt needs to stop making zombie movies.
