The huge success of BBC's latest adaptation of Bleak House is about to be continued in over 20 countries all over the world. The show had an average audience of 6 Mio. viewers. In addition to the first broadcast there will be a re-run on BBC Four beginning from Dec 29th. A BBC news release also tells us that during the broadcast of Bleak House the amazon.co.uk sales for Dickens' novel saw a 290% rise.
This is a rare one, so make sure not to miss it. A comedy series from the early nineties is to be repeated on UKTV G2 from Saturday, 3rd December 2005. You can get the complete listings on the TV station's webpages.

I am sorry, but it is one day too late that I am able to give you this news: Nat is narrating a four part docu-series on BBC Two called "Dickens in America".

It stars Miriam Margolyes as a presenter and it retraces Dickens' route during his visit to America in 1842. Dickens gave a report on his travels and experiences in his book "American Notes".

Nat portrays Charles Dickens - as the invisible narrator. The next three episodes will be airing each Monday from 19:00 - 20:00 (GMT) and it will be on until December 19.

To all our American visitors this may come as a nice pre-christmas news. Local PBS stations are planning to broadcast Andrew Davies' adaptation of Bleak House in January 2006. First broadcast dates indicate the third week of January. KLRN and WPT already list it in their programme schedules. PBS is showing a small preview clip on their Masterpiece site. The American DVD edition is planned to come out shortly after the US broadcast on February 28, 2006. You can now pre-order this edition via various outlets. Please note that all publishing dates might be rescheduled - this can be due to last-minute decisions of the publishers.

The BBC announced a UK DVD edition of the latest Bleak House adaptation written by Andrew Davies. It will contain three DVDs and is due to come out on February 20, 2006 and will contain subtitles. As far as I understand this edition will be encoded as region two. You can now pre-order with the BBC shop and save some money. Please note that all publishing dates might be rescheduled - this can be due to last-minute decisions of the publishers.
