Summary

A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of Dickens' famous novel, starring Pam Ferris, Adjoa Andoh and Tim McInnerny with Edward Long as Oliver.
Born and brought up in the appalling deprivation of the workhouse, the orphaned Oliver escapes and heads for London, only to fall into the hands of the notorious Fagin and his gang of child thieves.
But Oliver is an innocent at heart, and the attempts by Fagin and the impudently witty Artful Dodger to teach him the tricks of the pick-pocket's trade lead only to his almost immediate capture. His subsequent rescue, by the kindly Mr Brownlow, is only the beginning of a series of adventures that lead him to an incredible discovery.
This adaptation of Dickens' second novel is a moving tale of innocence and corruption. It features some of his most vital characters, from the diabolical Fagin to the murderous Bill Sikes and his mistress Nancy, whose love for Oliver is both her redemption and her downfall.

A dramatisation of Oliver Twist

Great preformaces of each character. Very well dramatised. A classic story of crime and pick pockets.

Great performance but that's all.

Although the readers/actors do a great job of the characters I found it really difficult to follow the story line. In fact I was sorry that I didn't have the book in front of me to tell me who was talking and what else was happening. The characters sounded realistic enough so, if you know the story really well, by all means buy this dramatization, but if it is new to you, you will be lost.
