Blooming Marvellous

A unique and unforgettable representation of a classic character by Raymond Briggs, the creator of The Snowman. Father Christmas was published by Hamish Hamilton in 1973, and in 1975 Raymond Briggs filled us in on what Father Christmas does the other 364 days of the year in the book Father Christmas Goes on Holiday.

Mel Smith voices a wonderfully grumpy Father Christmas in the Blooming Productions' animation. Now a seasonal classic in both video/DVD and Channel 4 broadcast, Raymond Briggs' Father Christmas is a warm, robust and celebratory favourite.
