Alex will be in the radio reading of Nicholas Nickleby which will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on weekdays at 2pm. It should also follow shortly on the iPlayer.
When his father
dies, Nicholas Nickleby is forced by his cold-hearted uncle to seek his
fortune in the world, away from his loving mother and sister. From the
schoolroom cruelty of Dotheboys Hall to treading the boards with
flamboyant travelling player Mr Crummles, Nicholas has some remarkable
adventures – but all the while, his wicked uncle’s scheming continues.
Oliver Milburn, Alex Jennings, Janine Duvitski and Alex Jennings star.
Adapted by Mike Walker from Charles Dickens's novel, directed by Jeremy
Mortimer and broadcast first in 1999.
Alex is obviously so good they listed him twice!
