DON'T MISS A GRAND NIGHT IN: THE STORY OF AARDMAN THIS CHRISTMAS...

14:35:00

Hey Lovelies, 

I am now home and do I have some film goodness for you to enjoy this Christmas lovelies! I am in a festive mood right now because my home is completely decorated for the big day and I love coming home to it! 

My home is my haven at Christmas and with great shows and films on the TV I can’t wait to just snuggle up. And this year I will be watching a special documentary on BBC One called, ‘A Grand Night In: The Story of Aardman’. 


Looking at the company who made my annual Christmas watch Wallace & Gromit, as well as Shaun the Sheep, Morph and Creature Comforts, the documentary explores the amazing workspace at Aardman, as well as the best moments from those working in it, including, Martin Freeman, Jane Horrocks, David Tennant, Bill Nighy, Terry Gilliam, Omid Djalili, Justin Fletcher, Anne Reid, Matt Groening, John Lasseter, Timothy Spall and Hugh Grant.

Speaking about the documentary, co-founder David Sproxton said: "When we arrived in Bristol in 1976 with our clockwork cine camera there was a total of three television channels for the British audience to watch. Although we were lucky enough to have a small contract with BBC Children's Television we never imagined our two man outfit would develop into a major studio of international repute. It's been an extraordinary journey, even if it is one we've taken one frame at a time."

While Peter Lord added: “The last forty years has been an amazing adventure. When we arrived in Bristol forty years ago, our only ambition was to find a niche, if we possibly could, in the world of animation. Our friends and colleagues thought we were pretty well barmy to start up anywhere outside London. So it’s amazing now to find that Aardman has become this huge community of superbly talented people, making films and telling stories that travel all round the world.”

Look out for the show on Boxing Day at 2:25pm before the Christmas special of Shaun the Sheep at 6:15pm lovelies!
