Best films on TV over Christmas, 2019
Where to begin? It's the season for giving, receiving, eating and laughing, but more than ever, Christmas is the season for watching. On every channel, TV specials are interspersed with classic films – and we've picked out the best of the bunch.
It's worth noting that terrestrial TV loves both the Madagascar and Indiana Jones franchises, so if ever in doubt, you'll know where to go. But for the CW edit, we've chosen films to suit every occasion: animated classics to watch with the kids; true stories to discover with your older relatives; and romantic staples to entertain at even the earliest hours and the quietest nights.
In chronological order, here are the best films to watch over the festive period, without even leaving the sofa. A merry Christmas indeed.
