IOM post present a Christmas miniature sheet featuring the animated bible story ‘Friends & Heroes.’ ‘Friends and Heroes’ is an animated TV adventure series for children, featuring Bible stories from both Old and New Testaments.
Produced by an Isle of Man company based in Ramsey, it has been broadcast on the BBC’s CBBC and BBC2 channels.
Friends and Heroes is now being dubbed into Manx Gaelic by an enthusiastic group of Manx speakers – the first mainstream TV animation ever produced in the Manx Language, available on DVD too for use in schools and homes.
Based in a fascinating and turbulent period of history, 69-71AD, Friends and Heroes introduces bible stories in a fresh way, creating clear connections between the bible themes and the exciting adventure stories. In each episode cartoon-style 2D animation tells the adventure, mixing seamlessly to 3D animation for the bible stories.
