Don't Miss Stick Man On TV On Christmas Day

Christmas telly often gets a bad rap but every now and then they put something on TV on Crimbo Day which is sublimely perfect for Christmas family viewing - and this year is no exception.

On Christmas Day, BBC One will be screening a special festive adaptation of Julia Donaldson's Stick Man at 4.45pm.

The RadioTimes reports:

"Sherlock's Martin Freeman and Downton Abbey's Hugh Bonneville are teaming up to bring children a bit of Christmas magic this year, as they lend their voices to BBC1's special festive adaptation of picture book Stick Man. The enchanting children's tale – written by Gruffalo author Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler – is being adapted for the small screen by Oscar-nominated entertainment company Magic Light Pictures and will feature as part of the BBC's big Christmas line-up."

Other stars featuring in the TV adaptation of this much-loved children's book include Jennifer Saunders, Russell Tovey, Rob Brydon and Oscar nominee Sally Hawkins.
