2016 Specials - Cunk On Christmas
Philomena is on a festive mission to track down the true meaning of Christmas, and find out exactly what it is he wants.
Fresh from her in-depth investigation into the life of Shakespeare, Philomena is now on a festive mission to track down the true meaning of Christmas, and find out exactly what it is he wants. It's an insightful documentary which takes her on a journey from pagan winter festivals and the nativity story, via "Sir Charles Dickings" all the way up to today's obsession with Santa.
Along the way Philomena will be grilling a variety of experts, trying to expose the tough truth about Christmas, such as why people still put up with brussels sprouts.
