I know Christmas television is normally poor but this year seems to have been just pure rubbish. Not just on terrestrial telly either as Sky don't seem to have had anything new to show. Ended up watching re-runs on UK Gold [:C]

Yep, that's about the long and short of it.

TV on demand is changing the way we watch TV - welcome to the future.

You'm probably right at that Chappo, even Discovery Shed has been a bit light with the fishing programmes.

The Christmas New Year repeats have been getting worse for several years.(1970's era Comedy
are an almost yearly event)!
New programs each year seem to be less and less.
The only thing that seems to be growing on the Commercial Channels are the adverts and the
number/times each one is repeated per hour.Same set in the same order, ruins the viewing.
Thankful for Sky plus to fast forward them. Makes T.V tolerable .

I've been watching some brilliant stuff - one of the best was a documentary on Doris Day; Sky Sports normally has something watchable; and there's usually something on the Documentaries. But I never watch modern films as I the majority I have tried to watch have been terrible - in the continuity and the cutting. Some of the old wartime black and whites are OK, like the Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers, but they are rarely shown now.

[:)] Trouble is they have forgotten how to make a decent program,plus there are very few "stars" now with actual talent,that is why you are seeing re runs from years ago and so much rubbish because it is cheap programming for them.
Thank goodness for the ON/OFF Switch.[:T]
The ON/OFF Switch Rules OK.

True. Lots of rubbish on over the Christmas period. Anything I want too watch on commercial channels, I record and then when I watch them I can skip the adverts.

I enjoyed the racing on boxing day; (Thistlecrack) a star is born, what a prospect.

Witness for the Prosecution on BBC1 was excellent. Toby Jones is one the best actors to emerge for some years.

Maigret on ITV, Boxing Day, was also very good.
