Christmas Special 2016- Doctor Who- The Return of Doctor Mysterio




20.45msk  25.12.2016- Live on BBC One
The Return of Doctor Mysterio -Doctor Who
 The Doctor joins forces with a masked superhero for an epic New York adventure. With brain-swapping aliens poised to attack, the Doctor and Nardole link up with an investigative reporter and a mysterious figure known only as the Ghost. Can the Doctor save Manhattan?

Doctor Who is a British science-fiction televisionprogramme produced by the BBC since 1963. The programme depicts the adventures of the Doctor, a Time Lord—a spacefaring and time-travelling humanoid alien. He explores the universe in his TARDIS, a sentient time-travelling space ship. Its exterior appears as a blue British police box, which was a common sight in Britain in 1963 when the series first aired. Accompanied by companions, the Doctor combats a variety of foes, while working to save civilisations and help people in need.

Norwegian Slow TV, Christmas and The Reindeer Sleigh Ride on BBC


In a Slow TV Christmas special, BBC Four rigs a traditional reindeer sleigh with a fixed camera for a magical journey across the frozen wilderness of the Arctic. Following the path of an ancient postal route, the ride captures the traditional world of the Sami people who are indigenous to northern Scandinavia and for whom reindeer herding remains a way of life.
Filmed in Karasjok, Norway - 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle - this journey takes us through breathtaking scenery not normally glimpsed by anyone other than the Sami. Deliberately unhurried, the rhythmic pace of the reindeer guides us along an epic two-hour trip that takes us over undulating snowy hills, through birch forests, across a frozen lake and past traditional Sami settlements.
Facts about the reindeer, natural history, Sami culture and the Arctic climate are delivered by graphics and archive stills embedded into the passing landscape. With no commentary, music or presenter - just the crunching of snow and the soft tinkle of a reindeer bell - this hypnotic sleigh ride is an enchanting experience to put everyone in the Christmas spirit.

A Sleigh Ride On BBC Four Might Be The Best Goddamn Show On TV This Christmas

All Aboard! The Sleigh Ride: How the BBC's stunning Slow TV Christmas special was filmed




Slow television, or slow TV (NorwegianSakte-TV), is a term used for a genre of live "marathon" television coverage of an ordinary event in its complete length. Its name is derived both from the long endurance of the broadcast as well as from the natural slow pace of the television program's progress. It was popularised in the 2000s by the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK), beginning with the broadcast of a 7-hour train journey in 2009.[1][2]

BORIS PASTERNAK: STAR OF NATIVITY-Selected poems by Boris Pasternak, translated into English by Andrey Kneller, russian-english parallel text and mp3 podcast

Boris Pasternak

BORIS PASTERNAK: STAR OF NATIVITY

Star of the Nativity” is one of six gospel poems in the longer lyric sequence that Pasternak published as the last chapter of Doctor Zhivago. Five of the six poems revolve around the Passion. “Star of the Nativity”is the one exception. Its aestheticreminds me of a Roublev iconpainting as annunciation, as Pavel Florensky says – likeness for an invisible, spiritual energy forwhich it is the leading wave. (Florensky is thinking by analogy of Jesus through whom God, although imageless, approaches in our image so that we through visible likeness can receive Him.) Perhaps all the Zhivago poems are annunciations in that sense. They were written in Stalin’s day, when history was a mask for idol worship. In response Pasternak offers “midnight opening”, “shy / as a candle in a / sentry’s window” – a sign of arson” perhaps, but “centring / a startled universe”.

It's a Wonderful Life - 1946 
American Christmas fantasy drama film
in English with english subtitles-
- Этот фильм как американская Карнавальная Ночь

It's a Wonderful Life is a 1946 American Christmas fantasy drama film produced and directed by Frank Capra, based on the short story "The Greatest Gift", which Philip Van Doren Stern wrote in 1939 and published privately in 1945.[2] The film is now among the most popular in American cinema and because of numerous television showings in the 1980s has become traditional viewing during the Christmas season.
The film stars James Stewart as George Bailey, a man who has given up his dreams in order to help others, and whose imminent suicide on Christmas Eve brings about the intervention of his guardian angelClarence Odbody (Henry Travers). Clarence shows George all the lives he has touched and how different life in his community of Bedford Falls would be had he never been born.

Например, мое любимое слово SERENDIPITY- слева объяснения значения в стиле живого преподавателя для самых частотных слов,

If you find good things without looking for them, serendipity — unexpected good luck — has brought them to you.
Serendipity does not come from Latin or Greek, but rather was created by a British nobleman in the mid 1700s from an ancient Persian fairy tale. The meaning of the word, good luck in finding valuable things unintentionally, refers to the fairy tale characters who were always making discoveries through chance. You can thank serendipity if you find a pencil at an empty desk just at you walk into an exam and realize that you forgot yours.
