Aardman has created a pair of mice from Watford who love Planet Earth III star in the final film released as part of the BBC’s Things We Love campaign, giving an insight to the UK’s most loved BBC content.

Watch the collection of films here – and find out how they were made in a special behind the scenes film, first broadcast on The One Show.

In the series of  animated films real BBC audience member’s voices and unscripted conversations are matched with stop-motion clay characters, created by the Bristol-based studio.

The dialogue in the films is the audience members’ own descriptions of things they love on the BBC.

The five 30 second films include:

A family of Casualty, BBC News and Sport mad hamsters from Port Talbot in Wales;
A family of foxes from Birmingham who can’t get enough MasterChef;
A father and son canine duo from Paisley near Glasgow who want to Race Across The World together;
A dog in a handbag from Sheffield who loves Match of The Day; and
A pair of pigeons from County Antrim who are obsessed with The Traitors.

Each film represents a different part of the UK and demonstrates the value of the BBC to audiences.

The families in the films were found through the BBC’s audience engagement programme, which interviews hundreds of people across the UK every year on their views about the BBC to ensure audiences are at the heart of everything we do.
