The stealthy arrival of Father Christmas opens this entertaining film showing two Christmases for three generations of one family in Sale in Cheshire. From the fun of opening presents to the rituals of turkey, paper hats and setting fire to the pudding, these are traditional happy events, though the star of the show is probably a new invention - the Dalek toy trundling around the kitchen floor.
