In the latest episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, Simon’s got a pair of Christmas classics to talk about!

Following the death of Muppet-creator Jim Henson in 1990, the people he left behind decided to keep going. But the path to The Muppet Christmas Carol would not be without problems.

As for Rocky IV? An already tough shoot was made even more taxing by the fact that two stars, Carl Weathers and Dolph Lundgren, didn’t really get on. Oh, and by Sylvester Stallone having to go into intensive care.

Stories of both are discussed in this episode…
