As part of its commitment to community theatre, the BBC has commissioned The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society, an amateur dramatics group, to recreate the J. M. Barrie classic as part of their festive programming. But can they pull it off? Narrated by David Suchet and filmed in front of a live audience, Peter Pan flies through the air; Captain Hook and his pirates set adrift in the lagoon; and with Tinkerbell due to light up the stage in a stunning electrical costume... what can possibly go wrong?!
