Short video on A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens on teachers.tv site
A quick burst of festive spirit, as Michael Rosen visits Charles Dickens' London home to explore his Christmas legacy.
Michael Rosen, Children's Laureate visits 48 Doughty St, the elegant townhouse in London where Dickens and his family once lived.
Now a museum, Michael looks at how the house could have inspired characters from Dickens' Christmas classic A Christmas Carol and views memorabilia from the time it was written.
The programme will give students and teachers an insight into how Dickens helped shape the Christmas we know today, as well as being a way to inject a bit of Christmas spirit in the classroom.
