Executive Producer – Raymond Briggs
For the first time Raymond Briggs will be an Executive Producer on the film adaptation of one of his books. Several of Raymond’s books have been made into half hour TV specials, most notably The Snowman. One book, When the Wind Blows, was made into a feature film and had a cinema release in 1986. But never before has Raymond had such a close relationship with the adaptation of his work. Asked by The Guardian newspaper in 2007 what Raymond thought was his greatest achievement he replied “Writing a mini-biography entirely in dialogue: Ethel and Ernest.”
