This 3 DVD boxed set features performances from Bob Hoskins, Ian McKellan,
Trevor Eve, Maggie Smith, Nicholas Lyndhurst, and Daniel Radcliffe in the classics of "David Copperfield" and "A Christmas Carol". In addition, Dickens' life and times are explored in an innovative mix of documentary and dramatic reconstruction titled "Uncovering the Real Dickens". Dickens is undoubtedly one of the great literary geniuses of all time. Yet, there is much about
Dickens’ incredible life that remains unknown. His is a fascinating story: from rags to riches, complete with bankruptcy, prison, forced child labour and fame and fortune, overshadowed by guilt and secrecy. This DVD set demonstrates how much Dickens drew upon his own experiences when writing fiction.
