A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens is a most famous Christmas story, and the tale of Ebenezer Scrooge has delighted generations at Christmas time. There have been many different film versions of this classic too and we bring you our favourite versions here this Christmas playing 24 hours. We have a a great version from 1984 by George C Scott and starring Nigel Davenport, Frank Finlay, Lucy Gutteridge and Angela Pleasence.
Then we have a classic version from 1951 by John Minter and shot in monochrome (black and white) starring Alastair Sim as Scrooge and keep an eye out for some other well known actors in their youth too. There is even a version from way back in 1935 starring Seymour Hicks and of course we have a cuople of great Scrooge versions in cartoon form for the kids too.
All these are playing back to back 24 hours plus there is also a good family film - The Christmas Candle which is shown later in the evening. Curl up and enjoy the ultimate Scroogefest.
