A Christmas Carol is Charles Dickens's timeless festive tale of transformation, redemption and compassion. Ebenezer Scrooge, the uncharitable miser, is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Future. Through these three visions, he is taught the error of ways, and he awakes on Christmas day full of excitement and Christmas spirit.

A Christmas Carol is also poised to be the first in a series of adaptions of Charles Dickens' novels commissioned by Piers Wenger, Controller of BBC Drama and Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content.
