A Baby Reindeer’s First Christmas – 24 December 2020 – 24/12/2020 – Thursday – Channel 4

Whenever you see a reindeer at a festival event, it’s likely come not from Lapland but the Cairngorm mountains in Scotland. This 1×60’ documentary from Flicker Productions and Maramedia takes us to the stunning Scottish Highlands to a community of dedicated herders who live alongside their antlered wards, and follows a group of young reindeer preparing for their first ever Christmas in a year like no other. Even in the shadow of Covid-19 and the worry that some of the biggest events in the festive calendar will be cancelled, the Cairngorms team go to great lengths to ensure the unique process of nurturing and training the herd isn’t disturbed.

We’ll meet a host of appealing characters from an orphaned reindeer calf to those learning to pull the Christmas sleigh for the first time and revealing lots about the Natural History of these endlessly fascinating animals – as well as showing the painstaking logistics and planning in the run-up to what is still one of the most wonderful times of the year.
