Channel 9 has a behind the scenes making-of special set to air. On the ABC, there’s a Christmas-themed telemovie starring Martin Freeman (pictured), the bloke who plays The Hobbit’s young Bilbo Baggins. It’s called Nativity. Freeman plays an under-achieving primary school teacher. Each Christmas, he and a long-time adversary from a posh independent school compete for a five-star review of their respective nativity plays.
