Exhausted after the last minute dash to the shops? Time to relax and throw something on the TV.

What's on?

Paddington (2014), BBCone at 6:45pm

The story of a lovably naive bear from darkest Peru, who’s forced to start a new life in London.

Men in Black 3 (2012). Channel 4 at 7:00pm

Here come the Men In Black, galaxy defenders!

After breaking out of LunarMax, a moon-based maximum security prison, Boris the Animal  decides to go back in time and eliminate the person who arrested him - Agent K.

When he does so, Agent J realises that the timeline has been changed and he too travels back to July 15, 1969, the day before Agent K is killed.

Starring Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones and Emma Thompson.

Die Hard (1988), Channel 4 at 9:00pm

Like it or lump it – this IS a Christmas movie!
