Dickens In America - The 2005 Documentary Hosted by Miriam Margolyes Comes to DVD


BFS releases a 3-disc set about the legendary author's 1842 tour of North America

    Join actress and Dickens enthusiast Miriam Margolyes (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Legend of the Guardians, Being Julia, Ladies in Lavender, The Age of Innocence) on a 10-part journey that follows the route of Charles Dickens' tour of the United States and Canada in 1842. It was this trip upon which he based his travel book, American Notes - a comic, critical record of the country's morals, flaws and fashions.

    From the White House to West Point, Miriam presents the Dickensian view on money, manners, slavery, corruption, greed, politics and religion. Witty and sometimes surprising, Dickens in America offers a fascinating insight into mid-nineteenth century North American life and how much - and how little - has changed in the years since the great author's tour. BFS Entertainment is preparing a March 1st release of the 10-episode U.K. program Dickens In America. This 2005 production comes on 3 DVDs (approximately 300 minutes) with 10 episodes: "The Passage Out," "Boston," "New England," "New York," "Philadelphia," "Washington & Richmond," "Pittsburgh & Louisville," "Midwest & St. Louis," "Canada" and "The Journey Home." The cost is $39.98 SRP, but you can pre-order from Amazon at a discount. That can be done using the button link below, and an online trailer and the package art is underneath:
