Oliver Twist

Drama adaptation of Charles Dickens' much-loved tale of a young orphan boy.

On a dark and stormy winter's night in a miserable, dank room, lit only by a few candles, Oliver is born into a life of poverty and misfortune. Growing up in a workhouse, watching the suffering and cruelty endured by the boys at the hands of his masters, Oliver decides he wants more and sets out for London. There he meets the Artful Dodger, Nancy, Fagin and the boys.

    Oliver Twist is a local public television program presented by KPBS.
