MASTERPIECE CLASSIC | The Tales of Charles Dickens | PBS

Duration: 01:00

www.pbs.org/masterpiece The Tales of Charles Dickens on MASTERPIECE Classic Sundays beginning February 15, 2009 on PBS. It seemed like the best of times, before it turned into the worst of times. Credit flowed like champagne on New Year’s Eve, until the inevitable economic hangover. Wall Street in 2008? No, London in the 1820s in Charles Dickens’ eerily prophetic novel “Little Dorrit”. MASTERPIECE CLASSIC presents this timely story of debt, greed, and love, along with three of Dickens’ other great works, on “The Tales of Charles Dickens,” airing Sundays, February 15 to May 3, 2009, at 9pm ET on PBS (check local listings).

“The Tales of Charles Dickens” features all-new productions of Oliver Twist, Little Dorrit, and The Old Curiosity Shop, plus an encore presentation of David Copperfield, starring Harry Potter’s Daniel Radcliffe in his first film role.
