I was just checking the EPG, on Great Classic, 28.2E, as sometimes they show films that I've forgotten about, and can download from the internet.
Imagine my surprise, and anger, that as soon as I reached September 23rd it all became Christmas films, in September!!

4 months of a build up to Christmas is ridiculous, and probably a lot worse for parents, of young children.

I realize that we're just coming out of a pandemic lockdown, and companies need to make money, but this leaves a sour taste.
