Description

Gripping full-cast radio dramatisations of four of Charles Dickens' classic masterpiecesCharles Dickens is one of the most renowned novelists of all time, and this final volume of the dramatised canon of his work includes some of his most complex and compelling novels. A Tale of Two CitiesSet during the French Revolution, this radio retelling of Dickens' powerful story of love, cruelty, violence and redemptionwon the 2012 Bronze Sony Award for Best Drama. Great ExpectationsThis classic tale explores the turbulent childhood of orphan Pip, his quest to find his true identity, and his growth to maturity through misfortune and misery. Our Mutual FriendCharles Dickens' last complete novel is a sweeping satire of wealth and corruption, centred around London's great river Thames. The Mystery of Edwin DroodIn Dickens' unfinished masterpiece, the arrival in Cloisterham of Neville and Helena Landless, twins from Ceylon, sets in motion a chain of events which leads to murder. With a star-studded cast including Robert Lindsay, Douglas Hodge, Geraldine McEwan, Amanda Redman, Alex Jennings and Ian Holm, these BBC radio adaptations are rich in drama, romance, suspense and tragedy.
