Re: UK Christmas Radio Times

Years ago when my sisters and I were children, my parents couldn't afford a Radio Times every week, but we always got on at Christmas! I remember being really excited when our Christmas Radio Times arrived!
Thanks for the memory!

Online is good for many things but the Christmas radio times is not one of them IMO.
Going through the radio times and highlighting the things to watch over the Christmas period is one of the best bits of Christmas.

Sorry. But I find this a remarkably sad statement. Sure it might be fun, but really one of the best bits of Christmas?

You didn't grow up in the North of England in the 70's did you?

No, only in the 80s.

However, last time I checked it was 2015.

BM's comment was in the present tense. So is it really one of the best bits of Christmas now?

And that's exactly it.
It reminds me of going through the radio times with my gran who was housebound for most of my childhood and who died when I was 11.
The Christmas radio times would arrive and we would go through it together and she would mark the things she wanted (and didn't) want to watch at the times she was at home alone over the Christmas period.
It was in the days before video recorders etc so if you didn't watch it when it was on you didn't see it and she always complained about them messing about with her regular programmes at Christmas.

So for me it's a childhood memory that I still like to do today as it reminds me of her and an online version wouldn't be the same. We rarely actually watch the things we've highlighted but that's not the point for me, it's the act if doing it that's important.

So yes in response to Carlos R it is still one of the best bits of Christmas for me even now and it brings a tear to my eye just thinking if it.
