I looked for this for many years and finally was able to buy it through Amazon in the U.K. I believe this was originally a BBC and Masterpiece Theater production. While they sell DVDs of many of their shows, they have for some reason never sold this show. My wife and I had great memories of this series and were shocked it was never shown again. It was just as amazing as we remember. Simon Callow is unforgettable as Wilkins Micawber. Paul Brightwell as Uriah Heep is absolutely oozing. The characters are fantastic. There were several choices for sellers. I bought it from a seller called The Best of DVD. It is a Dutch produced DVD, but I easily turned off the Dutch subtitles and it was perfect. Here in the U.S. I had to have a DVD player which plays for international zones. Many do that, but mine didn't, so I picked up a very inexpensive one on Ebay. All well worth it. Enjoy!
