Christmas Television

What an appalling lot, Christmas Television was.

No real gems to talk about this year, I fear that the media and television sector in this country is a mix of dumbed down American shows / films and an ever increasing amount of repeats, and a ever dwindling contribution by us Brit’s.

I personally use Tivo for all my TV needs, and even the Tivo Suggests only managed to record a home makeover program on Christmas day.

Perhaps it is my age, I am not sure.. But when I was a young, Christmas Television was something to look forward to, yet I struggle in this digital age to find an enjoyable show to watch.

This article from the times mentions that Michael Grade has done the scheduling for ITV1 in January, here is I hoping it is something good.
