So it's all decided by a committee eh? And we all know that a lame dromedary is an Arab stallion designed by a committee of yes men.

"Dire" is the right word for it, Moonzero!  I don't know why I am surprised.

For auntie the controller of programming will have thee final say. but it an all probability will be selected by a committee or focus group.
ITV will likely do something similar.

The result is usually dire anyway BngHd

I gave up watching broadcast TV some years ago because of the advertising . There's plenty to choose from on YouTube especially older shows from UK / US including this Norman Wisdom film . https://youtu.be/WFcIP-MSzRc . I prefer DVDs myself .

Now now, with the greatest respect, calm down Cosmos. I am totally with you on detesting TV commercials and I thank you for the tip about Norman Wisdom films on YouTube...but my question wasn't about the bliddy commercials.  My question simply asked...

 Who decides Christmas TV Programming? And where does he live? Any ideas anyone?

I mean...endless creaky old Carry On films, Mary Poppins pap, hours and hours of programming about the royal family eating and drinking themselves happy on various multi-thousand acre estates up and down Britain, festive attempted murders on Coronation Street, more and more old Morecombe & Wise reruns, even "Christmas with Val Doonican" warbling away on BBC4 (ye gods!)...and no Norman Wisdom films!  Nope.  Not one!

This year, someone's obviously decided to break with time-honoured tradition. Not one single Norman Wisdom film!  I give up.
