In the latest episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, two festive films that each faced particular challenges to bring to the screen.

Home Alone 2 (1992) proved to be a tricky shoot, and the movie would have a direct knock-on for another film as well.

Meanwhile, 2011’s Arthur Christmas saw Aardman design the entire film in Bristol, before it was animated in America. And it’d have a touch of Paul Greengrass about it.

Stories of both are discussed in this episode.
