christmas no.1

The countdown to the big day has begun, and now we’re getting seasonal music documentaries to add to the mix.

‘The Christmas No.1 Story’ (BBC Two) is surely a story that’s been told before.

But in this the year of the 60th anniversary of the UK pop charts being established, it’s the perfect pre-Christmas hors d’oeuvre.

A day or so on from transmission via the BBC iPlayer, it proved to be that potent cocktail of music, archive and celebrity interviews that delivers every time.

Perfect for a snoozy afternoon over the festive season.

Did I learn anything new?

No, but it hit the spot and reminded me of a Christmas song that didn’t even trouble the top 40 let alone make it to the No.1 slot.

And a little Christmas teaser for you – who are The Three Wise Men?
