Aired previously October 2000

A six-hour adaptation of Charles Dickens's complex and compelling novel ...

The young orphan Oliver Twist flees a cruel workhouse for the dirty streets of London, where he falls in with a nefarious gang. As the shrewd Artful Dodger, the menacing Fagin and the vicious Bill Sikes lead Oliver deeper into a criminal life, a dark conspiracy is revealed around him. Readers have been fascinated and shocked by Dickens's tale of life on the mean streets of London ever since the story was first published in 1837.
