Classical British for every age,
This review is from: The Charles Dickens BBC Collection [DVD]  (DVD)
For Christmas (not especially for Dickens's Carol, I purchased this big (in every aspect) box of classical British literature, now transformed into film. Each and every one has its special charm and the viewer can choose ackording to today's form. As a non-british watcher I would say that no other nation has the ability to put into film what its greatest authors have written as books. As an extra bonus for the young generation, this could easily be a natural way from watching to reading. As a reasonably educated person I find myself immersed in the lovely sea of British acting. Every smile, grumpy comment or terse word brings to life the unending world of the great literature and its possibilies in the form of film. I can highly recommend this collection to every english-speaking person who will feel good to relive some of the great works of Dickens again. Perhaps it will lead you to the book-shelf too?

I hesitate buying the Charles Dickens BBC collection because I am not sure there are subtitles...preferably in English for my wife who is French, understands English quite well but does prefer to have the option of English subtitles if there are strong regional accents or what I call "sloppy" english...Can anyone inform me on this? Thanks in advance.

9 months since you wrote this, so although you're probably not still waiting for a reply, I can report that yes, subtitles are included.
The bottom of the box says 'Subtitles: English for the Hard of Hearing'.
