2. The Tale of Peter Rabbit

If there's one thing we should all know - it's NOT to go into Mr McGregor's garden. Starring Chris Addison. From December 2013.

Beatrix Potter's famous tales are celebrated this Christmas.

Her love of the British landscape and its inhabitants - coupled with her world famous ability for storytelling - means she has been one of the most celebrated children's authors of the last hundred years.

This suite of five of her tumultuous tales, including some of the lesser-known stories, brings comedic surprise, comfort and joy to the Christmas audience.

Their timeless wonders pit the delight and childlike innocence of the very human characters against the dark and dramatic ruthlessness of the food-chain-led underbelly of Cumbria's fields and hedgerows.

In this episode Chris Addison stars as Peter Rabbit and John Henshaw as Mr McGregor.
