The third volume of this magnificent, award-winning Dickensian comic epic first transmitted by the British Broadcasting Club's Radio 4. It's a Victorian epic of shenanigans at awful schools, worse prisons, featuring giant rabbits, and long lost super-hero aunts - in the style of Charles Dickens after far too much gin. Winner of the 'British Comedy Guide Editors' Award', volume three stars Anthony Head, Celia Imrie, Geoffrey Whitehead, Richard Johnson, Tom Allen, James Bachman and David Mitchell.
"Immense, clever, fast sharp fun. Get it"
Bleak Expectations is the remarkable adventures of young Philip Bin as he struggles to rescue himself and his sisters from the plotting of his guardian, the scheming, evil and badly-named Mr Gently Benevolent, and the blood-curdling Hardthrasher brothers.
A celebration of an author regarded as one of the foremost modernist literary figures of the twentieth century. Celia Johnson reads from To The Lighthouse and Mrs Dalloway, and Virgina Woolf is featured talking about modern literature.
"Not Full Novem"
The evil Iago pretends to be friend of Othello in order to manipulate him to serve his own ends. Cyril Cussack, Frank Silvera, and Celia Johnson star in this unabridged performance of Shakespeare's Othello.
