It’s time to settle down, after eating ALL the turkey, chocolates and you’ve opened all of your presents (socks included of course!) and now it is time to enjoy some TV with the family.
Here are a few ideas to enjoy this Christmas with the family:

Around the World in 80 Days – BBC One, Boxing Day, 5.50pm

He told press ”I hope it brings a bit of joy. I think it’s very apt that it’s set for a Christmas transmission.

It feels like a genuine – this phrase is overused – but it feels like a genuine piece of family entertainment, something that you can all, you know, grab a mince pie and enjoy together”.
