It's time for our annual post on where and when you can find all your favorite versions on TV this year! Below is the list of what I've found so far. Keep checking back, because I'll update as I find more. And if I've left out any showings that you know of, please comment and I'll add them. All times are Eastern.
Thanks to Gail Shahan at Alison Larkin Presents for this special offer for Dickensblog readers! The company has a brand new recording, "A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens & The Night before Christmas by Clement Clarke Moore," read by award-winning narrators Derek Perkins and Alison Larkin. If you use this link, you can get a free download of the recording with a one-month trial subscription to Audible!
Audible.com has just reissued Paul Scofield's (A Man for All Seasons, Hamlet, KingLear)reading of A Christmas Carol. Note: Although the Audible site says the book is unabridged, several other sources state that it actually is abridged.
Once again, Oliver Twist is in the news: Rolling Stone has an update on the upcoming remake of the Oliver! film. It will be a contemporary film "with a genre-hopping soundtrack that will of course include hip-hop." Ice Cube (who also is preparing to play Scrooge in a Christmas Carol remake) will play Fagin, and Thomas Kail -- Tony-Award-winning director of the musical Hamilton -- will direct.
