The title of this item caused me to seek it out in 1992 since I compulsively track down every version of A CHRISTMAS CAROL that I can.
Unfortunately this is not an adaptation of the Dickens yuletide classic, but is simply a presentation of Galway playing flute versions of various Christmas Carols. It's enjoyable on that level, but I'm sure the title has resulted in a lot of confusion over the years.
Knowing that Galway was a musician I was hoping this might be scenes from A CHRISTMAS CAROL accompanied by his flute-playing, but it's not.
For anyone who could go for such a rendition of the CAROL I highly recommend the 1970 Anglia Television version which features a series of John Worsley's watercolor paintings of scenes from the Dickens story accompanied by narration from Paul Honeyman. It's available on video but is not on the IMDb at this time.
