Little Britain Christmas Specials this December

Little Britain Christmas Specials this December on C4!

This Christmas - C4 is proud to present never seen before episodes of Little Britain!!

That's right - Matt Lucas and David Walliams have made two special shows, which C4 will be screening only hours after they screen for first time in the UK! Celebrity guest stars include Steve Coogan, Ronnie Corbett, Paul McKenna, Peter Kay, Julia Davis, Morwenna Banks and Dawn French (who plays Vicky Pollards mother!)

In the specials the inhabitants of Little Britain are escaping abroad for the holidays.

Lou has some exciting news for Andy – the local church has organised for him to go to Disneyworld. Although Andy is worried he will miss Bargain Hunt, Lou whisks him off to catch a plane and they are even given a tour of the cockpit. Andy is desperate to press a button … as long as it’s not that big red one!

Meanwhile the only gay in the village, Dafydd, visits the Greek island of Mykanos to see his friend, Myfanwy, who has set up her own gay bar. But when she entrusts Dafydd with handing out flyers round the island, her opening night doesn’t quite go to plan.

Vicky Pollard is in a Thai jail having been caught smuggling heroin, and her lawyer is having trouble preparing her for her trial. Marjorie Dawes has been sent on a FatFighters initiative to the USA, and Bubbles De Vere is spending the summer months jetting across Europe, and pops to Monte Carlo to see an “old friend”.

The Prime Minister of England is on a state visit to the USA but Sebastian is suspicious of the special relationship between his boss and the President. Meanwhile, hypnotist Kenny Craig is in a hotel in Portugal when he bumps into his hero, Paul McKenna.

C4 will screen the LITTLE BRITAIN CHRISTMAS episodes across two special nights - December 26th & 27th at 8.30pm. Little Britain series 1 & 2 will repeat over summer on C4 - every weeknight at 8.30pm from Thursday 28th December.

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
