    “It's a Wonderful Life” is based on the 1946 American film produced and directed by Frank Capra, which is itself based on a short story "The Greatest Gift", by Philip Van Doren Stern. The film is considered one of the most loved films in American cinema and has become traditional viewing during the Christmas season.

    The story features a troubled George Bailey, a man who has given up his dreams in order to help others. An intervention by his guardian angel on a desperate Christmas Eve, shows George all the lives he has touched and how different life in his community of Bedford Falls would be had he never been born.

    Experience Frank Capra’s classic film as a captivating 1940s radio show, complete with live music, sound effects, and a talented ensemble. This stylish production offers an ideal way for families to celebrate and reflect upon the holidays.
