Made for television version of the Charles Dickens classic of the same name. Ebenezer Scrooge is a hard-nosed, single-minded businessman in Victorian London. He has no friends, has disowned his only living relative - his nephew Fred Holywell - and generally treats everyone he meets with extreme contempt. He hates Christmas, only cares about making money and only gives his clerk, Bob Cratchit, the day off. However, he is taught the true meaning and spirit of Christmas by three ghosts who show him his own past and present. He is also shown what the future holds for him after his death if he doesn't change his behavior for the better.

Merciful Heaven. What is this? Spirit, this is a fearful place. I wish to leave it.
The more recent DVD and Blu ray releases by 20th Century Fox edit out the fade to blacks where advert breaks originally would have been (which ironically had dramatically broken the film up into the five 'staves' as per the novel). This has made for some rather abrupt jump cuts in the visuals and music. See more
