Christmas was better in the olden days. I may have grown up with only one television channel and only black and white, but it kept us entertained. Here and now, the more channels we get, the less I want to watch. But I’m used to finding some good programmes on most days, except Christmas Day.
This year it’s the other way round. Found two programmes worth watching yesterday, but not much else, before or after. The two were Doctor Who, and Wallace and Gromit. Have I missed something, somewhere? At this rate I’ll have to resort to saved BBC4 programmes from earlier this month, or perhaps those films saved on video, was it Christmas two years ago?
Or maybe we’ll dive into the box decorated by young and bored Son many winters ago, where we keep Christmas videos. I could do with some Muppets. Or even Postman Pat.
