well, I spent about an hour creating a Christmas Day listing - then it went into DEBUG mode. !!!

I had the same in another post, luckily I pressed back, and I was able to copy and then add it when it stopped playing up!

A decent schedule there. I'm not sure about a few things, like the quizzes before the Queen, no soaps (as these bring the ratings), I quite like the idea of Parkinson in their too, and Ant & Dec, I'd prefer the panto to be on Christmas Eve late afternoon/early evening.

So I'd have
5:30 Millionaire
6:30 Emmerdale
7:00 Ant & Dec Christmas Takeaway
8:00 Coronation Street
9:00 Parkinson
10:00 Harry Hill
10:30 2DTV
11:00 News
11:10 Film

Though the nightmare before Christmas is actually a PG, they always seem to air it at night though. That would also be nice on Christmas Eve.

I was also thinking, to increase audiences, and get revenue lost from ads, how about having interactive content with each programme with money or prizes up for grabs or something. At 50p a connection, they could make money back and more.

I am a fan of the old movies so this would be my ideal BBC2 Christmas schedule:

6.00am Breakfast.
7.00 FILM: A Christmas Carol. 1938.
8.20 FILM: Great Expectations. 1946.
10.15 Carols from Kings.
11.30 Some Mothers Do Ave Em.
12.00pm FILM: Casablanca. 1942.
1.45 The Weakest Link.
2.30 FILM: North by Northwest. 1959.
4.45 The Queens Speech. Rpt.
4.55 The Story of Bohemien Rhapsody. (BBC3 or TWO)
5.55 The Making of Band Aid 20. (BBC3 on TWO)
6.55 Carols from Kings. Rpt.
8.10 FILM: It's a Wonderful Life. 1946.
10.05 FILM: Pulp Fiction. 1994.
12.35am FILM: Psycho. 1960.
2.15 TOTP2. Rpt.
2.40 TOTP2. Rpt.
3.05 FILM: Frankenstein. 1931.
4.15 News 24.

Everyday I would show Breakfast for 1 hour from 18th December up until 3rd January 2005. I would also show a season of Hitchcock films which would guarantee big ratings and TOTP2 everynight and a late night season of vintage horror films.
Maybe I should apply for a job as a scheduler at BBC2 Smile Smile (only joking)

I only created that scheldule because its what I would really like to see on Christmas Day, I wouldn't have any soaps you see.
I'll do a proper christmas line-up in a minute.

I know thats not that much different but I think that it would be a good Christmas line-up, in my opinion.

Shocked
CITV at 05.00 on Boxing morning? - sure fire ratings winner.. Confused


In previous years CITV has had some sort of programmes at that time over Chritsmas.

Really? I bow to your greater knowledge then...


Yeah I think it's mainly as children tend to be up earlier than adults, plus as it's Christmas the ITV Morning News becomes a 5 minute summary so they use it to fill a gap. It's usually just CiTV branded, though before it's gone out with just network announcements saying, now on ITV as part of CiTV (one even said as part of Childrens ITV...). I believe last year was branded and featured Tots programmes like Engie Bengy, etc, where as on previous years they've shown't old american imports like Extreme Dinosaurs and the Hurricanes, etc.

Plus Love TV.
I like where you've added the panto, nice position, though more audience may be achieved on Christmas Eve afternoon/early evening, though as for a film, isn't Jack Frost on BBC One this Christmas?
