BBC TV And Radio Programs To Watch Out For This Christmas

bake off christmas 2016

It seems that this Christmas the BBC has food and cooking pretty much covered. There’s the Festive edition of ‘Bake Off, Nigella is doing her thing and I’m glad to see that Rick Stein has a new series! There’s also a couple of BBC Radio shows that you might be interested in.

I’ve taken a look through the listings and noted the programs that should prove to be the most interesting. There are links to their pages on the BBC website so you can find more or watch them through iPlayer. The ‘Christmas Kitchen’ show has already broadcast it’s first episode and the next one is broadcast today!

Leave a comment below on which shows you are looking forward to watching!
