JYC 2010 22nd December - TV Queen

Most of the year we can plod through the year with no tv guide, stumbling across programmes as we find them. But Christmas always necessitates a copy of the Radio Times.

It's partly for the features but mainly because Christmas seems to bring out the best in "terrestrial" tv and all channels are vying for attention so shows can often overlap. The v+/sky+ generation means that 2 things can be taped and this does cut down on some arguments, when there are very different viewing pretences this is a saviour.

What amused me more was that given the variety of channels available to pick my Christmas viewing from, none of the specialist digital channels got a look in. In fact most did not change their schedules to account for the season.

Of course the end of a year will throw up the traditional talking head countdown shows which kill off an hour or three. Perfect to start and finish a box of something sweet.
