Barbour is continuing its Christmas tie-up with Raymond Briggs’ The Snowman and The Snowdog for a second year, offering viewers a further glimpse into the life of Billy, who has grown up since he first appeared on screen in 1982.
The original animation entitled The Story Continues shows Billy enjoying the Christmas season with his wife, daughter and now elderly dog, who was once a puppy in The Snowdog. On the 25 December, the family are opening presents when a knock at the door announces the arrival of The Snowman, who’s given a gift of – what else? – a Barbour jacket.
The film ends as Billy’s sub-zero friend tries on his new apparel. The line reads: ‘Gifts they’ll always remember’.
