For festive viewing, perhaps one of the highlights for many are the animated adaptations of the stories of Raymond Briggs.

As well as stories like The Snowman and Father Christmas, his stories range from the disgusting Fungus the Bogeyman, his nuclear wartale When the Wind Blows, and his autobiographic work Ethel and Ernest (which is being shown at 20.30). Briggs reflects on his career in this profile of the man.

Raymond Briggs: Snowmen, Bogeymen and Milkmen is on BBC Two at 21.00.
