Re: Christmas TV 2017

Is it just me or was it a lot earlier this year.

In many shops it was out with Halloween and in with Christmas.

Firework season and Christmas season run over roughly the same time period.

They might as well be merged.

The best thing about Christmas is the Christmas Edition of the Radio Times.

 

Nearly 300 pages this year.

 

It will begin to appear on shelves from Saturday 9th December in London and the South East and will be available nationwide by Tuesday 12th December.

 

 

In preparation for this issue, the next few weeks editions are delivered early, every 4 days or so.

I find the more I read about programmes, the fewer of them I want to watch. Smiley

Yep you have to implement a quality control filter Tongue

For me the main ones are:

Big Brother.
Anything with Ant and Dec "hosting" (massive inverted commas there) it.

Re: Christmas TV 2017

Slighly OT but this is quite interesting:

Ha ha reading the old spring/summer Argos catalogue from 1984. Page 219 has the C64.
(I grew up with the C64 in the 8 bit era).

Seriously, interesting to see how your Christmas shopping would be like in the past Smiley

EDIT: Cassette walkmans, and Casio calculator watches! I've had those when I was younger. In fact I can even recognise the model of the calculator watch I had Tongue

Re: Christmas TV 2017

There was a time when films had to be 5 years old before being shown on TV.

Christmas was a good time to show 'new' films, this made the TV guides compulsive reading...................

Re: Christmas TV 2017

I haven't seen the Christmas programme guide yet, so a question for anyone who has studied it yet: Is there anything worth watching? If last years offerings are anything to go by, I'm guessing the answer is 'NO'.
