Storyline

A 3-part biography of the great British author, filmed in an unorthodox manner: Actors playing various individuals in Dickens' life (as well as Dickens himself) are interviewed as if they are appearing in a contemporary documentary. Their words are taken from actual letters and journals of the individuals involved, and serve to illuminate the hardships and successes in Dickens' life, and the way his experiences found their way into his novels.

Very Entertaining
25 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I know this isn't a traditional review but I haven't seen this program in a long time so I won't be able to critique it in detail. I caught this program late one night and was I really upset that it wasn't airing any time soon. I really enjoyed this production on public broadcasting station and I have been searching for it ever since. After searching for about two hours online I believe I have found it at a few local stores.(I don't know if I can post them here.) I believe it is sold as the first disc 3 disc box set titled "Great Authors Charles Dickens". Do a search to find it sold at your local retailers. I don't know if Amazon sells this but it is available from the UK Amazon site.
