Highlights from the channel's festive lineup include Alfred Hitchcock TV movie The Girl, a James May's Toy Stories special and a new Dragons' Den.
The Girl stars Toby Jones as Hitchcock and charts the acclaimed director's obsessive relationship with Tippi Hedren (Sienna Miller) - star of his 1962 film The Birds. Imelda Staunton (Vera Drake) and Penelope Wilton (Downton Abbey) also feature.
The Dragons' Den one-off will explore the world of Christmas commerce, with nine entrepreneurs representing six businesses descending the stairs to pitch their festive businesses in the hope of securing a much-needed cash injection.
James May's Flight Club - a Toy Stories special - will see the Top Gear host investigate the nation's childhood love affair with the model plane, and set out to achieve the first cross channel flight ever achieved by an engineless, homemade super-sized toy.
Also forming part of BBC Two's Christmas schedule is Arena special Sister Wendy And The Art Of The Gospel - which follows Sister Wendy Beckett, a South African-born British nun and art expert who rose to fame in the 1990s for presenting a series of BBC art history documentaries.
Documentary series Queen Victoria's Children, motoring show Racing Legends, the traditional Carols From Kings and Goodbye To Canterbury - an exclusive insight into the life of retiring Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams - will also air over the festive period.
