My memories of Christmas TV and movies when I was a child - I don't have them. One of the strongest traditions in our family was that the TV stayed switched off on Christmas Day. When my cousin got older, he was allowed to watch Christmas Top of the Pops (it was a teenage thing).
As I have grown older myself, have moved out, and spent (unfortunately too) many Christmases on my own, I have looked forward to Christmas TV as my main source of entertainment. Older still, and family history is now my main form of entertainment - so the TV stays switched off again.
The only 'Christmas' movie which I will watch at any time of the year is "A Christmas Carol" - the version with Sir Patrick Stewart as Scrooge. I admit, I first watched it because I am a Star Trek fan - and he played Captain Picard - but I continue to watch it because he is such a splendid actor. And he's British!
