In this one-off Christmas special, Stephen Fry brings his insight and wit to bear on gadgets from Christmases past. Drawing on (yet more) unusual archive footage, Stephen surveys how Christmas and gadgets go together like mince pies and cream, as he takes a wry look at toys, snow, decorations and Christmas dinner. Stephen also suggests some Christmassy gadgets you can buy right now, you know, if it weren't being broadcast on Christmas Eve. The 8 Out of 10 Christmas Special follows at 9.00pm.
