A delightful, much-loved, half-hour British cartoon, based on one of Raymond Briggs’s gentlest stories. It’s sensitively directed by Diane Jackson, and was put together by more-or-less the same team which produced the Beatles cartoon, Yellow Submarine. The haunting song Walking on the Air became a big hit, and rightly so. Not many cartoons are this charming.
