Overview

Powerful full-cast radio dramatizations of three of Charles Dickens' most famous novels

Barnaby Rudge, set against the background of the anti-catholic riots of the 1780s, follows the plight of young Barnaby and his widowed mother. Martin Chuzzlewit is a darkly comic masterpiece in which a disinherited Martin sets sail for America to seek his fortune. Dombey and Son examines a rich city merchant and his troubled relationships at home. With a cast including Alex Jennings, Robert Glenister, Pam Ferris, Simon Cadell, Patrick Troughton, David Collings, Christopher Benjamin and Patricia Hayes, these adaptations bring out all the humor, romance, pathos and tragedy of Dickens' classic masterpieces.
