The second of four programmes reconsidering stories which have had a profound influence on popular culture. 2: Oliver Twist. Charles Dickens 's story of an orphan who has to re-invent himself as he moves between the dingy underworld squalor and gentility of the middle classes of Victorian England reverberates still in popular culture. The David Lean film, made in 1948, remains, for social historian Roy Porter , the definitive version of the book. The actual resolution of who Oliver is and how he is re-united with his family is often overlooked in favour of the more memorable images - Bill Sykes clubbing Nacy to death or the young boy saying "Please Sir, I want some more". Peggy Reynolds talks to Roy Porter , Steven Connor (Professor of English Literature at Birkbeck College) and Lionel Bart , whose musical Oliver! provides so many people with memories of the story. Producer Sally Marmion Repeat
