30 minute TV special for family viewing
Award winning ON ANGEL WINGS, directed by Dave Unwin, produced by Iain Harvey and with music composed by Julian Nott, tells the story of a shepherd boy who is taken on a secret, magical night-flight to witness a Christmas miracle.
Starring the voices of Dominic Cooper (The History Boys, Captain America, Dracula Untold), Sir Michael Gambon (Harry Potter, The King’s Speech, Paddington), Juliet Stevenson (Mona Lisa Smile, Truly Madly Deeply, Bend It Like Beckham), and Colin McFarlane (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Amazing World of Gumball).
Based on the book by critically acclaimed author Michael Morpurgo, ON ANGEL WINGS is a coming of age journey that will touch the hearts of audiences of all ages and religions as they share a young shepherd’s profound experience.
Rachel is 8 and for the first time is allowed to join her brothers and sisters to visit their grandfather – Amos (voiced by Sir Michael Gambon), as he carries out his annual ritual of a night in the hills, where he worked as a young shepherd boy.
Grandfather is delighted to see the children and a special bond is established between him and Rachel. He tells them how she reminds him of a magical night; he then proceeds to recount it.
He explains how, ahead of the other shepherds protecting their flock with him, he is flown away by the Angel Gabriel (voiced by Dominic Cooper), to be the first visitor to the newly born Christ child.
This magical re-working of the nativity is rich with human poignancy as we share his very special experience.
