Leading English stage and screen actor Robert Powell who has enjoyed success and critical acclaim for more than 40 years. He is probably best known for playing the title role in Franco Zeffirelli's groundbreaking TV mini-series 1977 Jesus of Nazareth.
Charles Dickens can truly be said to have invented the traditional Christmas. In this seasonal show, they reveal Dickens the celebrity, the social reformer, the actor, the entrepreneur and, above all, Dickens the supreme entertainer.They celebrate his life and times through his writings and scenes from his best-loved novels, not forgetting, of course, that perennial favourite, A Christmas Carol, and all interwoven with seasonal merriment and music.
Much loved actor whose countless film, TV and stage appearances include his internationally acclaimed portrayal of Jesus in Franco Zefferelli's epic Jesus of Nazareth - and, in contrast, his starring role opposite Jasper Carrott in TV's sitcom The Detectives.
