Clipology – What Is the UK’s Favourite Christmas Film


The nostalgia for Christmas films means we love them. Be Broadcast was challenged to launch Clipology to discover the UK’s favourite Christmas film. Many people love Christmas films so much that they can quote word for word, and each year we see equal passion and rage at Die Hard being listed as a Christmas film – showing exactly our love for them.

But which is the nation’s favourite?


Be Broadcast teamed up to launch Clipology, a brand-new board game that streams real clips and puts the knowledge of TV and film buffs to the test during the festive season to encourage people to play along at home.

Home Alone came out on top of our research – with many saying the message about family and the importance of being together during the festive season is why it is their favourite.

We also uncovered which films people could quote easily – the core element of the game – with Home Alone coming out on top again.


But would everyone agree? We brought in Movie and TV critic Boyd Hilton to debate the findings.

Finally, we wanted to keep bringing the subject back to the game element – so we turned the top ten into a quiz – removing some of the critical components – so they could really put Boyd through his paces.

Boyd could play with outlets including BBC Merseyside, Shropshire, Leeds, Sussex, Surrey, Hereford and Worcester, Newcastle, London, Bristol and many more.
