https://metro.co.uk/2020/12/01/what-is-on-bbc-this-christmas-and-new-year-13684264/

Talk about it here.

Hipsters who are bursting to say, 'Huh! BBC? NOBODY watches that any more. I prefer to abase myself by grovelling at the altar of evil colonial moneygrabbing multinational Nette Flicks' please go to the dedicated thread.

I will wait until 18 December to peruse the Christmas Radio Times, felt tip pen at hand to add ticks as appropriate.

I thought Mrs Brown's Boys was scrapped, for cringeworthy unfunniness.

AdonisBlue - 02 Dec 2020 16:24:00 (#3 of 128)

Miranda's Games, Mrs Brown's Boys, Dr Poo and Gavin and Stacey. I know it's an annual tradition to moan about Xmas BBC but fucksake that's awful.

It’s completely shit. I accept they can’t make new programmes at present, but they’re really scraping the barrel there.

G & S was pretty good. The first time you saw it.

AdonisBlue - 02 Dec 2020 16:26:13 (#6 of 128)

They seem to manage to make new Mrs brown's boys and Gavin and Stacey fine.

This is what we need:

Wow, that is mostly pretty interesting stuff. See we aren't all viewing the BBC with rose tinted specs.

Play Away. Brilliant.

Carols From Kings- awesome

Yankee Doodle Dandy- fantastic.

I haven't seen that Alice in Wonderland but Freddie Jones is in it.

TheVoiceOfReason - 02 Dec 2020 16:40:39 (#11 of 128)

Call the fucking Midwife. Christ on a bike. Thank god for EastEnders.

bossab2 - 02 Dec 2020 16:41:03 (#12 of 128)

Presumably all the BBC has left to show us due to CV are reruns from 1972

(on the basis that anybody who watched it the first time will have fogotten by now)

AdonisBlue - 02 Dec 2020 16:41:13 (#13 of 128)

Thank God for Eastenders. That's not a sentence you read much.

bossab2 - 02 Dec 2020 16:42:12 (#14 of 128)

A whole day of Tomorrows World reruns with Raymond Baxter would be quite cool though.

AdonisBlue - 02 Dec 2020 16:42:21 (#15 of 128)

#12 No they seem to have no problems making new Mrs Brown's Boys and Miranda Christmas Specials.

AdonisBlue - 02 Dec 2020 16:42:42 (#16 of 128)

(((Tomorrow's World)))

solomongursky - 02 Dec 2020 16:46:25 (#17 of 128)

If you diss Call The Midwife and its cosy life lessons and charming working class people I shall fight you.

Tomorrow's World: "One day everyone will have a mobile telephone that will fit in their pocket -- you'll be able to walk around all day, telephoning!"

My 82 year-old mum has cancelled Christmas, so for the first time, I can just ignore the whole fucking thing and stay home. Bonus. Thank you Covid.

DonkeyOT - 02 Dec 2020 17:05:49 (#20 of 128)

Eastenders - Cockneys angrily and noisily shouting at one another; I watched the first ever episode with Miss Brahms from "Are You Being Served" in it and never, ever again.

The last time I watched Corrie was when Brian Tillesley got shot (and that what was the first time for seven years or so). When it began I was an avid fan, but as I live in Crewe I though it was a documentary.
