Many of Raymond Briggs’ books have been adapted for film and TV. (The Snowman, When the Wind Blows, Father Christmas, The Bear ) but Ethel and Ernest is the first one that he has been directly involved with as an Executive Producer. He advised on the script stage and attended the first voice recordings, and since full production started Raymond has been in close contact with the production team. As the film has taken shape he has provided invaluable insights and visual documentation that has helped us keep the period details as authentic as possible. This photo was taken during a visit to his Sussex home last week. (click on image to enlarge)
