Well I’m going to Queensland for the rest of this week, so posting may slow down more than usual. I thought it was about time I shared some of that Australian Christmas cheer, so here is the ABC’s seasons greetings from various people within the broadcaster and around the world.

The whole BBC is getting into the Christmas mood, and BBC Two have taken the latest incarnation of their idents into a surreal pop-up book world filled with scissor wielding Grinch like creatures and cardboard skies.

Check out the rest of the regular BBC Two idents here, or explore below the fold for a Christmas themed promo, and one of those whats-on-nexts for the whole BBC…

One year ago today I posted the BBC One Christmas ident for 2006, and in the spirit of consistency I give you this years Christmas ident, this time featuring the skating prowess of some penguins. Check out the rest of the BBC One idents right here.

And even though I’ve never watched an episode of Dr Who, the trailer for this years Christmas special looks pretty cool, and it goes with my whole previously stated appreciation of original programming during the holidays.

– Thanks for the videos Andy and Craig.

Christmas, Candles and Channel Five.

Earlier this year Channel Five celebrated ten years of existence with some special “Five is Ten” idents, now though its time for that Christmas cheer.

Check out last years Christmas ident from Channel Five here, or what I think is one of the coolest things on this site, a shark eating a meat version of the Five logo.

– Thanks again for the video Andy.

Let the BBC entertain you this Christmas.

This time last year I posted BBC One’s Christmas promotion for their upcoming holiday programming, went off on a little tangent about the non ratings period, and romanticised the idea of actually sitting around the television with your family. I’ll spare you from hearing about the last two again, and instead just post this years BBC One Christmas promo.

The music is ‘Let Me Entertain You’ from the 1959 Broadway musical Gypsy.

UPDATE: Another BBC One Christmas promo (second video), this time featuring ‘Make Someone Happy’ by Jimmy Durante. This time predominantly featuring the upcoming comedy on BBC One over the Christmas season.

– Thanks Andy for the second video, and thanks anonymous internet for the first.
