The Herald on Sunday - Sunday Herald Life - - Tv And Radio -

You go along through your life, just try­ing to get by, just try­ing to do your best and to see the best in oth­ers, and then, one day, you are forced to re­alise: there are peo­ple out there who not only be­lieve a two-hour drama on the ca­reer of Torvill and Dean is some­thing worth mak­ing – they also be­lieve it’s some­thing that should get broad­cast in the peak slot on Christ­mas Day it­self. Else­where, the en­ter­tain­ment for the most won­der­ful day of the year con­tin­ues with the now tra­di­tional Call The Mid­wife spe­cial (nuns, nurses, ba­bies, in­jus­tice, pain, heart­warm­ing/sober­ing mes­sages for us all). Com­edy high­lights in­clude fes­tive edi­tions of Ben El­ton’s ir­ri­tat­ing Shake­speare show, Up­start Crow (8.35pm) and the de­monic Mrs Brown’s Boys (10.15pm). Mammy! Did you get what you wanted?
