Summary

Sir David Jason reads Charles Dickens' magical, much-loved Christmas story. Ebenezer Scrooge is a mean, unpleasant man who dislikes people generally and Christmas especially. But one Christmas Eve, he has a terrifying experience: He sees the ghost of his one-time business partner, Jacob Marley, who is bound in chains and doomed to wander the Earth because of the sins of his past life. Marley warns Scrooge that he is headed for the same dreadful fate: but there is one possible means of escape.

Soon, he will be visited by three more spirits: the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come. Can these phantoms persuade Scrooge to change his ways?

Spirit of Christmas brought to life

The spirit of Christmas is brought to life through Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol. The reading by Sir David Jason magically transforms you as if you were standing right next to Scrooge himself.

The only complaint I have is that the reading had to end. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
