Britain's Craziest Christmas Lights

2/12/14

Britain's Craziest Christmas Lights repeats tonight on Channel 5. Narrated by the popular former Slade vocalist Noddy Holder, this documentary takes a warm-hearted look at those Christmas fanatics whose lives are fairly traditional for the most of the year but change dramatically in the run-up to the festive season.

Eschewing the typical procedure of rooting around the loft for an ageing box of decorations, our Christmas-obsessed characters plan their displays months in advance. For them, putting up the lights also involves a head for heights, questionable DIY wiring and an unshakable resolve.

This festive programme will air on the 2nd of December at 8pm on Channel 5.

Penelope Keith’s Hidden Villages to start on 11th November on More4

3.11.14

Cream teas, bunting, thatched cottages swathed in roses and quaint church spires; for generations this rural idyll has conjured the very best of Britain. In this three part series, Penelope Keith takes to the road to explore British villages.

A villager herself for the past 36 years, Penelope’s travelling companion is a series of guide books illustrated with evocative paintings that offer a window on our rural way of life. Published 80 years ago, they are the perfect yardstick for her to examine what makes our villages so unique and why we love them so much.

In this three part series, Penelope travels across three very different landscapes, from the epic plains of East Anglia through the rugged hills and valleys of the North and on to the bucolic splendour of the South West. Penelope will discover traditions that are under threat, visit communities undergoing huge change and explore what the future holds for our villages.
