New Book! Ben Baker's Festive Double Issue! OUT NOW!

Christmas invariably means excess – be it through food, drink or television. Whether it's Morecambe and Wise recreating Singin' In The Rain, the Trotters dressed as the Dynamic Duo or EastEnders running over a baby for light relief, TV is our very pal throughout the entire turkey and tinsel period. This book pays tribute as forty years of festive programmes are viewed and reviewed in over 250 mini-essays by Ben Baker.

Alongside the classics there's the likes of Kid Creole’s strange post-watershed musical about racism, Roland Rat going to Switzerland, Skeletor learning the true meaning of Christmas, Doctor Who's original spin-off, The Bee Gees teaming up with Frankie Howerd for a medieval comedy and Feargal Sharkey having a nightmare on a Concorde whilst the Krankies watch on in helpless bemusement high above the Telecom Tower. Plus much much more. But for real. Not just like when people ay that in adverts when there's actually about three more things. This is packed with Christmas memories both obvious and obscure and I know its going to set off some "OH YEAH!" glands in a lot of people's brains.

Its been my big project for the last few months and I'm incredibly proud of my work. So it'd be lovely to get it into as many hands as possible so click below to buy a copy! Because as the mighty Noddy Holder from Not Slade 2 informs us every December time in his loudest voice, “THE GRIIIIIMMMMLLLLLEEEEYYYYSSSS IS ONNNNNN!” Also: Christmas
