The Best Christmas Day Telly Ever! | Channel 5 | 2022
This one-off festive special takes us back in time and through the day, from excitable all-too-early breakfasts to bleary post-party nightcaps – with the TV that accompanied those nostalgically remembered moments down the years in Christmases past, in the format of a perfect December 25th TV schedule. Featuring everything you’d expect – those must-see TOTP specials, Queen’s Speeches, blockbuster movies, comedies and entertainment specials – and a few you really wouldn’t (like Mike Reid’s Christmas ‘Runaround’ – a frankly surreal spectacle). Contributors include those who’ve been there on screen, such as Ricky Tomlinson, Debbie McGee, Jenny Powell and Sian Welby.
