It's nice to choose something without 'Christmas' and 'Special' in the title (although if you are on the hunt for one of them, Sarah Millican has got a Christmas Special on after this at 10.30pm). In this epic Toy Stories Christmas Special (NARGH!), James May gets to the heart of his childhood love-affair with the model plane, and sets out to achieve what seems an impossible dream: the first cross channel flight ever achieved by an engineless, homemade supersized toy. If it survives the perilous 22-mile journey, James's classic toy glider lovingly built from over 1,000 pieces of balsa will smash the British distance record.
James May's Toy Stories: Flight Club. BBC2: 9.30pm
