Christmas TV Movie Guide: Tuesday, December 24 - Gremlins, Raiders

By
It's a Wonderful Life - 1.10pm, Channel 4
One of the all-time festive classics, it's wouldn't feel quite like Christmas without an airing for Frank Capra and James Stewart's drama. Overlooked at the time of its initial release in the '40s, this story of an angel who rescues depressed businessman George Bailey effortlessly tugs at the heartstrings.


Toy Story 2 - 3.40pm, BBC One
Arguably one of the few sequels that is better than the first, Pixar's Toy Story follow-up sees Buzz and his pals set out to rescue Woody after the cowboy is swiped by a toy collector.


Fantasia - 4.15pm, BBC Two
Disney collides with classical music in this beautifully-executed feature cartoon. The 'Sorcerer's Apprentice' sequence - which sees Mickey bring to life broomsticks - is reason enough to sit down with Fantasia all over again.


Raiders of the Lost Ark - 8pm, BBC Three
The first and best of the Indiana Jones saga, here our whip-cracking archaeologist evades a rollong boulder, romances Karen Allen and fights the Nazis in Steven Spielberg's edge-of-your-seat adventure.


Gremlins - 9pm, Watch
The aforementioned Spielberg weaved his magic yet again on this '80s blockbuster, producing Joe Dante's film about a boy whose new pet brings a whole host of trouble. Phoebe Cates's story about her father dressing up as Santa and dying in the chimney still haunts us to this day!
