    Left penniless by the death of his father, nineteen-year-old Nicholas Nickleby seeks help, along with his mother and sister, from Uncle Ralph Nickleby. The hard-hearted money lender takes an instant dislike to his nephew and gets rid of the boy by securing him a teaching position at Dotheboys Hall, where the evil Wackford Squeers presides. Horrified by the barbarity he sees there, Nicholas defies Squeers and is forced to flee.

    Recorded for ABC Radio, Tom evokes an innocent Australia through a quietly comic delivery. We can witness again the days when holidays were in quiet seaside villages, newspapers were king, Decimal Currency Day was a big thing and Beatle haircuts were all the rage. When teenagers were inspired by music to a fresh idealism, protest and groovy gear. When man walked on the moon. Join Tom for a journey through the drama and excitement of an Australia now known only by memory.
