Two half-hour animations based on Roald Dahl’s much loved book Revolting Rhymes. The collection of six rhymes, which retell classic fairy stories with different twists and endings, feature a star-studded voice cast, including David Walliams and Rob Brydon, Gemma Chan voicing Snow White, Dominic West playing the Wolf and Rose Leslie bringing to life Red Riding Hood.

The films were produced by Martin Pope and Michael Rose for Magic Light Pictures (the company behind other popular Creative Europe-funded animations such as The Gruffalo, Room on the Broom and Stick Man) .

The first part airs on BBC One at 6:30pm on Boxing Day, with part two airing at the same time the following day.
