Christmas Telly

Finally, we get it. The detailed news of what’s on our screens over Christmas, a two-week bumper guide to…dross. so much dross. Predictable yuletide stuff that has to be there, but hardly anything to set the pulses racing, foreign films you’d hard about but missed, obscure classics you’d never seen, interesting documentaries which have sneaked below the radar. I don’t mind, ‘cos I’ve got Breaking Bad 6 and almost all of Six Feet Under lined up and ready to roll, but it would have been good to have some treats transmitted direct, instead of getting it all from DVD. Happy Christmas, every one.
