Overview

The spectre of the French Revolution—the rumbling of the death carts, the thud of the guillotine, the ferocious mobs and the storming of the Bastille—is vividly portrayed in this lavish BBC production, complete with a full cast and stirring music. Dickens' epic tale is a listening experience to be treasured.

'Chesterton asserted that time would show that Dickens was not merely one of the Victorians, but incomparably the greatest English writer of his time; and Shaw coupled his name with that of Shakespeare. It is the conviction of the present writer that both these judgments were justified. Dickens—though he cannot of course pretend to the rank where Shakespeare has few companions—was nevertheless the greatest dramatic writer that the English had had since Shakespeare, and he created the largest and most varied world.'—Edmund Wilson in "The Wound and the Bow"
