In case you weren't aware, an adaptation of the Kate Mosse book 'Labyrinth' will be shown on Channel 4 this weekend - 30 and 31 March.
The mini series stars John Hurt, Tom Felton (of Harry Potter) and Jessica Brown
Findlay (of Downton Abbey) and was produced by Ridley Scott. The story, if you haven't already read the book, follows two women, modern-day archeologist Alice Tanner (Vanessa Kirby) and medieval Alaïs Pelletier du Mas (Jessica Brown Findlay) who lives through the Crusades and Cathar massacres in medieval France - and their quest to find the Holy Grail. Alice, a volunteer at a French archaeological excavation, discovers the skeletal remains of two people in a cave, as well as a labyrinth-engraved ring, which attracts the attention of unscrupulous individuals. In 1209, newly married Alaïs is living in Carcassonne, a stronghold of Cathars who have been declared heretical by the Church. Alaïs and her father are protecting three sacred books that reveal the secret of the Holy Grail from the Crusaders.
The series looks like being another great advert for this beautiful area and we are expecting to see a lot more copies of Kate Mosse's trilogy of books around the pool this summer....much better than last year's covertly-covered copies of ' Fifty Shades of Grey'!!
