      2005 BBC release is a real treat for me. It includes some of the movies that were not previously available on DVD, and some that were out of print and could only be purchased as used.

The movies included into this set are:

      The DVD’s come in a nicely designed box featuring some of the characters. Each DVD cover is designed in similar style. The set looks wonderful, and the movies are simply great. It will make an excellent gift for any Charles Dickens fan or a fan of period movies. I rate it 10 out of 10.
