The TV Cream Advent Calendar: Door 14

It’s Christmas on BBC2. Cary Grant is “not going back to Yale.” “Not geing beck?” replies his posh compadre. It’s the first in a season of his greatest hits.

And then…it’s Newsnight’s December! Not Newsnight. No. Newsnight’s December. With John Tusa, apparently sitting in a comfy chair his own home, sporting a stripey blazer. “Welcome to another of our monthly programmes,” he intones pompously, featuring some of Newsnight’s “more notable films…or that you may have missed.”

But wait. He has some particularly cheery Christmas fare for us. “One of the most worrying social problems of all: drug addiction.” Humbug!
