Armando's Tale of Charles Dickens is on TV this week ...
BBC Four HD 11:20pm Tue 3 Aug
Satirist and lifelong Charles Dickens fan Armando Iannucci, worried that endless adaptations of the novelist's work have led his skills to go unappreciated, sets out to prove why he still matters as a writer in the 21st century. Using David Copperfield as a starting point, he unpicks the language and the revolution of a master storyteller, and with the help of funnymen Barry Cryer, Kevin Eldon and Phill Jupitus, he gets beneath the skin of some of the more outlandish characters. Finally, through encounters with the types of people Dickens wrote about, including lawyers and a debtor, Iannucci claims that his stories are just as relevant today
