Synopsis

The most lavish Dickens production by the BBC up to that point, this lovingly shot adaptation by Arthur Hopcraft created a gold standard for the production of Dickens on UK television. Director Ross Devenish marshals a superb cast to capture the psychological depth of the novel as well as Dickens' concern to show how all sections of society are morally bound to each other from the highest born to the lowest street cleaner.
