Humax TV Tonight: Wurzel Gummidge

Worzel Gummidge is back tonight on BBC One for a brand new adventure at 7.15pm.

After a thunderstorm, a flock of rare choughs turns up at Scatterbrook Farm. Keen to seize the opportunity to scare such a rarely sighted bird, Worzel enlists the help of Susan and John. But their plans are soon scuppered as word of the choughs gets around and a group of avid birdwatchers moves in. With the twitchers refusing to leave, can the children come up with a plan to help scare the choughs and save Worzel from embarrassment?

In 2019, the two Christmas episodes of Worzel Gummidge received a wealth of glowing praise from audiences and critics alike. The Guardian gave five stars, describing the shows as a “joyful, joke-filled eco-romp”, the Radio Times also awarded the “funny, poignant and heartwarming” films five stars, and the Daily Mail proclaimed Worzel “a TV wonder”, similarly giving five stars.

Last year’s Christmas episode, Saucy Nancy, garnered even more critical acclaim, with the Radio Times again awarding five stars, declaring the episode is “like taking a bath in pure kindness”. Whilst the Daily Telegraph and The i gave four stars, with the latter labelling the film as “gorgeous” and “affectionate”.

The three new films, written and directed by Mackenzie Crook, are co-produced by Leopard Pictures and Treasure Trove Productions for BBC One.
