BBC announces ‘bumper crop’ of festive TV shows over Christmas

FROM exciting new shows to brand new episodes of classic favourites, all featuring our most-loved and biggest names, you’ll be in the very best company this Christmas on the BBC.

The entertainment doesn’t stop at Christmas – as it is unlikely there will be parties this year, BBC One will exclusively be showing a celebration of New Year’s Eve like never before with The Big New Year’s In.

In addition to the spectacular line up of festive treats on the BBC’s channels, which are available live and on-demand on BBC iPlayer, there will be a huge range of additional programmes and box sets, all available wherever you are, whenever you want to watch them.

Charlotte Moore, BBC’s Chief Content Officer, says: “It’s never felt more important to help bring the country together to share, to laugh and to celebrate the festive season on the BBC. 

“Let’s face it, it’s been a difficult year, unlike any other, so we’ve pulled out all the stops this Christmas to keep people entertained and bring comfort and joy when we need it most, with a range of unmissable programmes across our channels and BBC iPlayer. 

“We’ll provide laughter with new comedy and entertainment shows, escapism with riveting new drama and natural history, heart and warmth with special episodes of your favourite shows, and companionship from many of the nation’s biggest stars. 

“There’s something for everyone and as always it promises to be a very special time of the year on the BBC. There’s really no need to go anywhere else this Christmas!”
