The film special illustrates the life and work of "the greatest novelist in the English lan- whose novels brought about sweeping sccial reform The Hero Of My Life illumi- nates its subject on three inter- connected levels: his public image, his private life, and the reflection of his own life in his writing. It is an intimate and refreshing portrait, revealing many aspects of Dickens' col- orful life previously known only to experts. Thames Television made the film in 1970, to mark the centenary of Charles Dickens' death. The program traces the man's dramatic rirc from rags to riches.
