Ethel and Ernest

e-and-eEthel and Ernest, the story of Raymond Briggs’ parents.  (Author of The Snowman and Father Christmas)  Ethel and Ernest was first a graphic novel, before it was made into an animated film.  It tells the story of Raymond’s parents from how they met, and how they lived through the depression, and world war II, and how they coped with changes like the introduction of television, electric mild carts, and even the telephone.  It is a heartwarming story, it has humor and sadness, and is completely engaging.  Truly brilliant in my opinion and well worth watching.  It is currently available on the BBC i player.  Thank you Mr Briggs for sharing your story with us.
