From October 2009, Sky Arts will be screening Charles Dickens's England, presented and narrated by Derek Jacobi - a journey through those places, buildings, towns, cities and villages where Dickens lived or was inspired in his writing. The two part series, co-produced by Sky Arts, is the lead production in their Dickens season of programmes and dramas and will air on Sky Arts 1 & 2 and Sky Arts HD. Sky Arts are the only channel in the UK dedicated to all areas of the arts; and with a particular focus on great masters of their craft – from Elgar to Elvis, Sky Arts is the perfect place for one of literature’s most enduring masters.

Charles Dickens is the UK’s most prominent writer since Shakespeare and the literary voice of Victorian England. His characters are universally well known, while his style of writing came to define the episodic cliff-hanger. Over 250 different film and television adaptations have been made of these stories – 34 in the last 10 years.
