A Tale of Two TV Specials
The podcast below the story of two of my favorite TV Christmas specials and what they have to say about Christmas – and media. And, as it turned out, I discovered a few things in doing it.
The first is that quoting Scripture on TV has been taboo for a lot longer than most of realize. The second is that the only TV Christmas special that includes Scripture is longer available on network TV (but can seen for free on Apple TV if you have an account). The third is that while it was relatively rare for a child (like me) to have never heard the Bible read aloud in 1967, it’s probably very common now.
There is, I’m quite sure, a point to be made. We’ll get back to it, in the new year.
Until then, wishing you and yours a wonderful Christ filled Christmas!
