In this episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, a pair of hit family movies with very different stories behind them.

It took a little while for writer/director Paul King to confirm he was returning for Paddington 2. And for the sequel, there was a big idea that didn’t fit into the first movie, plus a much-loved sequence that nearly got the chop.

Mrs Doubtfire meanwhile was a film that saw its star, the late Robin Williams, spend over 100 hours in a make-up chair. What’s more, it was a movie sparking a lot of behind the scenes debate about its ending.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
