Oscar-winning New Zealand filmmaker Taika Waititi has lined up some of his Hollywood friends by videolink from their living rooms for a coronavirus lockdown charity reading of Roald Dahl's classic James and the Giant Peach.

Waititi, director of Jojo Rabbit and Thor: Ragnarok, reads the British author's 1961 children's novel while his friends chime in, voicing characters and having fun.

The benefits of reading to children are well understood. And one of the silver linings of lockdown has been the return to simpler forms of entertainment.

The novel will be read in 10 instalments on the Roald Dahl Youtube channel. Funds raised will go to Partners In Health, a charity for maternal health in Sierra Leone.

Where:  Online
When:   On demand
