Telly is why you should be in the UK this Christmas!


Contrary to their North American neighbors to the west, both Christmas Day and Boxing Day might just possibly be the most important days in the UK for telly watching. Each and every year, both the BBC and ITV1 do not disappoint.

Obviously, there are way too many reasons to want to be in London this Christmas. Besides the obvious fact that it is London, Christmas telly is way up on the list for me. As we wrote last year…and the year before…and the year before that, Christmas and Boxing Day telly in the UK can be a brilliant sight to behold. As always, arrive early, get a good seat in front of the telly on Christmas Day and enjoy. Here’s a quick look at what’s in store for Christmas telly on ITV and BBC. Be sure to check out the short teaser for Still Open All Hours. Color the U.S. jealous, yet again, this year.
