I'm a little late with this news: The miniseries Nick Nickleby aired on BBC One earlier this month. (Thanks to Pete Orford for the tip.) The modernized version of Dickens's third novel, which ran in the afternoons, earned between 700,000 and 800,000 viewers per installment. I don't know yet whether it will be made available over here, but the show's website mentions an international distributor, so it might be! In the meantime, a few clips are available at the BBC site.
