Charles Dickens (1812 – 1870) was an English writer and social critic. He created some of the world's most memorable fictional characters and is generally regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian period. During his life, his works enjoyed unprecedented fame, and by the twentieth century his literary genius was broadly acknowledged by critics and scholars. His novels and short stories continue to be widely popular. They include Great Expectations, Oliver Twist, A Tale of Two Cities, David Copperfield, and A Christmas Carol.

The Campbell Playhouse (1938–40) was a live CBS radio drama series directed by and starring Orson Welles. It was a continuation of The Mercury Theatre on the Air, but now directlysponsored by the Campbell's Soup. The series offered hour-long adaptations of classic plays and novels, as well as adaptations of popular motion pictures.
