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.

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.
