Landmark Emmy-winning production of the 9 hour Royal Shakespeare Company's worldwide stage event based on the Charles Dickens novel, starring Roger Rees.All the story strands of the epic Dickens tale are finally tied up. Squeers gets his comeuppance, the secret of Smike's birth is unveiled, and Uncle Ralph's blackmailer reappears with a stunning revelation. Happiness hangs in the balance for Nicholas, Kate, Madeline, the Kenwigs, Frank, Uncle Lillyvick and even Miss LaCreevy, as the theatrical Crummles make a dramatic reappearance. The final note is struck with a very Dickensian Christmas:Three levels of carolers singing God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen... and a look at the city's dark underside.
