Good Christmas Tales!

I really liked this selection. There was a good variety with the old classics like A Christmas Carol (which was my personal favourite...Lionel Barrymore was excellent as Scrooge)and the comedy of Miracle on 42nd Street came a very close second for me. I also enjoyed Christmas by Injunction which had a nice little twist at the end. All in all, it is worth a listen to get into the Christmas spirit and with 6 plays for under ?4, can't be bad can it!
