The Wallace and Gromit videos

All three original Academy Award winning animations by Aardman Animations were adapted for English Language Teaching and published by Oxford University Press.

In all three Wallace and Gromit videos, the visuals, music and sound effects are identical to the original versions. However, in the ELT Adaptations the language level has been greatly simplified and a narrator has been added. Wallace is played in both the original version and in this ELT Adaptation by Peter Sallis, an actor famous for his portrayal of a Yorkshireman in a long-running British comedy The Last of the Summer Wine.

The story is narrated by Stephen Tompkinson who starred in the film Brassed Off and the TV series Ballykissangel.
