Royal Shakespeare Company production was filmed for television in 1982 and is available on video tape in a boxed set consisting of nine 60-minute tapes.

Two BBC productions of Dickens's The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby have been produced, one by Vincent Tilsey in 1957 and one in 1968 by Hugh Leonard. Saxon Lucas and D. Corr produced a "pop opera" called Smike for BBC television in 1973. None of these came close to the power and spectacle of the David Edgar production.

Also available on video is the 1947 film directed by Alberto Cavalcanti for Ealing Studios (screenplay by John Dighton), starring Cedric Hardwicke, but it, too, is not as powerful as the televised Royal Shakespeare Company production.
