Summary of Season 1 (1985) - 2 discs

This memorable BBC miniseries retells the timeless tale of Charles Dickens's Oliver Twist (portrayed at different ages by Scott Funnell and Ben Rodska), a plucky orphan boy who escapes the horrors of a workhouse, takes up with a pint-sized pickpocket (David Garlick) and makes friends -- and enemies -- in the London underworld. When he's rescued by the kindly Mr. Brownlow (Frank Middlemass), it's only the beginning of Oliver's adventures.
