Charles Dickens - Words and Music

Charles Dickens - Words and Music

Readings by Prunella Scales and Sam West, with music played on Victorian musical boxes and cylinder pianos.

This programme of readings, alternating with mechanical music of Dickens's time, contains extracts from Oliver Twist (1839), David Copperfield (1850), Little Dorrit (1857), and the climax of the programme, three marvellous scenes from Great Expectations (1861).

The programme reveals the diversity of Dickens, and fully confirms his own immodest claim to be 'the inimitable'.
