New version of The Snowman to be screened on Channel 4 next year

New 'fresh, not identical' version of Christmas TV fixture to use traditional techniques, original production team – and new song

It has been a traditional fixture at Christmas for almost 30 years, and now Channel 4 has decided it is time to give The Snowman, based on a story by Raymond Briggs, an update.

A new "fresh, not identical" version is about to go into production, using traditional techniques and many of the original creative team, at a cost of £2m. It will be screened next Christmas, as part of a season of programming to celebrate Channel 4's 30th anniversary in November 2012.

The updated version will feature new elements, with the Snowman, a new little boy, and an extra character, a snow dog, flying over international landmarks, including the London Eye, rather than Brighton pier and the Pavilion, as in the original.

They will turn up at a ski resort, rather »
