Christmas animation mixed with satire

The new film, Arthur Christmas, is an Anglo-American endeavour which brings together the talents of Britain's Aardman Animations with the marketing might of a big US studio.

This light satire on the increased corporatisation of Christmas stars the voices of some of Britain's top actors.

Talking Movies' Tom Brook reports.

Talking Movies is broadcast on BBC World News on Saturday at 13:30 GMT and is repeated on Sunday at 00:30, 07:30 and 20:30 GMT.
