Just 200 years of the birth of Charles Dickens

On February 7, 2012 marks the bicentenary of the birth of the English writer, one of the most famous novelists in world literature. In his extensive work masterfully combined storytelling, humor, and irony tragic sense with acid social criticism and a fine description of people and places, both real and imagined. The collection 1-1 portal offers you one of his best novels: Oliver Twist. Film, TV & Radio

Film, TV & Radio

From multi Oscar®-winning Oliver! to BBC’s hit series Bleak House, the world of film and TV have endeavoured to translate Dickens’s immortal stories to the screen. Dickens’s highly visual narrative style inspired early film-makers and many have credited the author with providing the very DNA that cinematic language is based upon. The oldest surviving film version of a work by Dickens – an adaptation of A Christmas Carol – is from 1901 and over a hundred years later Dickens’s works are still being filmed for cinema and TV and every one of his 15 novels has been filmed at least twice.
