Oliver Twist (BBC)

Exceptional BBC mini-series adaptation of Dickens' timeless tale, the story of the poor boy who asked for more.

Temporarily rescued from the prospect of a life of crime by the kindly Mr Brownlow, Oliver finds himself pursued by the savage thief Bill Sikes and the enigmatic Monks.
