This Christmas, we’re very excited that Channel 4 will be showing a half-hour adaptation of We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, brought to life by the likes of Olivia Colman, Pam Ferris and Mark Williams.

This festive adventure tells the story of Stan, Katie, Rosie, Max, the baby and Rufus the dog who embark on an adventure a day before Christmas after their parents (Colman and Williams) go to the rescue of grandma (Ferris). Spurred on by Katie’s love of grizzlies, the children go on a bear hunt through long grass and squelchy mud in a Christmassy tale ideal for family viewing.

Join the bear hunt and tune in to Channel 4 at 7:30pm on Christmas Eve, with a repeat at 5:25pm on Christmas Day.

Here’s a sneak preview…
