British funnyman David Walliams has been reunited with his former classmates to recreate a photograph of a school play.

The Little Britain star acted in a production of All The King's Men when he was a teenager at Reigate Grammar School in England, and his fellow cast members have been tracked down for a special Tv show.

The group lined up to recreate the photo at the original location of the shoot, 30 years after it was taken in 1983, for British programme Snapshot In Time.

A spokesman for Rain Media Productions, which filmed the show, says, "Snapshot In Time was created when we heard about a photographer who bought a photographic studio, and discovered many old group photographs. The photographer found the people in the photographs and retook the pictures in the same location with the same participants.

"We approached David and he suggested using a photograph of him in a school play that he had found while researching his autobiography. As the film outlines, the photograph has an extraordinary relevance for David. It was the moment which, in his words 'changed his life.' This was when he stood on stage in a school play in March 1983, and heard the audience laughing. He knew then what career he wanted...

"David thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, and the process of tracing everyone and bringing them back to Reigate to a place 'back in the moment' was so significant for him."

Snapshot In Time is due to be broadcast in the U.K. on Thursday (06Jun13).
