Ethel and Ernest

I have had copies of Raymond Briggs’ book for many years, buying more copies to give and lend.

I see that BBC2 is showing an animated version tonight at 7.30 pm “based on” the book.
Never having seen this animation before, I am unable to recommend or criticize it.
If, however, it is faithful to the book then I’d say unequivocally, “Watch It !”

I watched the animated film. It was beautiful and very touching and poignant.

Thank you Edwin…it was both moving and somehow comforting. I love Raymond Brigg and , from my time as a teacher, know how well he communicates to young and old.
We haven’t seen much of you on here of late…I miss your contributions and hope you are as ok as it is possible to be…take care x
