It’s legendary for a reason. Since our launch in 1923, Christmas has always been particularly special at Radio Times. Every year families gather round our bumper double issue, highlighters in hand, ready to circle the shows they want to watch over the festive period. The reveal of the cover is as anticipated as the first robin or mince pie.
Thus it gives us great pleasure to announce that this year’s Radio Times Christmas cover star is…Shaun the Sheep!
The cover was designed by Aardman exclusively for Radio Times. Inside you will find almost 300 pages of features and recommendations for the festive fortnight, with 4,500 films alone. From Downton Abbey to Doctor Who, the Queen’s Speech to comprehensive radio listings, it’s all you need to have yourself a merry little Christmas.
The double issue will go on sale from Saturday 5th December in London and the Midlands, and is available nationwide from Wednesday 9th December
