This lavish miniseries adheres closely to Dickens's classic novel about an orphan named Oliver who falls in with pickpockets in 1830s London. Though Oliver dreams of a better life, the city's seamy underworld threatens to destroy his future.
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.
