20201224Radio 2's resident movie critic James King counts down the top twelve Christmas films of all time, as voted for by you, the Radio 2 audience.

You had two weeks to vote and now the results are in. Twenty-five films made James' shortlist, but only one film will be given the tinsel crown. There were period dramas, romantic comedies, action classics and singalong musicals - because really any genre can be a Christmas film if it ticks the right boxes. Will it be a box office hit, a critical favourite or a cult classic that gets the top spot?

Joining James for the countdown will be people who made the films, famous fans and some of you telling James what you like about your festive favourite - plus loads of music from Christmas movies.
