I've looked in all the TV magazines but couldn't find it. I've never seen it before and want to.

Don't bother.

Despite what everyone will tell you about it being this amazing, ultimate feelgood, timeless classic of a film, it's actually a load of crap.

It's a brilliant film. I've scoured the Christmas Radio Times for the past few years and I've never seen it available on terrestrial or freeview channels.

I've got this on DVD somewhere. I bought something from Play or Amazon and got it as a free gift.
Still haven't watched it. Infact it's probably still in the polythene!

Pleasure. Glad to be of assistance. I wasted about three hours of my life watching this film. I urge others not to make the same mistake.

The only place I've seen it advertised is on the 'Sky Classics' film channel. It's showing 9:15pm Dec 22.

Agree. I watched this for the first time last year and was bored rigid. Not quite sure why it's rated so highly and it seemed to go on just forever. When it comes to the quintessential Christmas film, Alastair Sim's 'A Christmas Carol' is the one to beat.

It is a festive classic, but hardly ever on TV.

The last 20 minutes are the only good bits of the film, got bored with the rest.

Go and watch Transformers if you don't like it as I'd imagine that's more your level. Ever thought that, if you're in the minority, your opinion might be worthless?

It's A Wonderful Life is a wonderful movie.

I think Sky have had the rights to show it for the last couple of years which is why there's been no sign of it on terrestrial.

Have only seen it once and enjoyed it but wouldn't necessarily want to watch it again. Once IMO was enough.

Now if you're talking about films to watch again and again a favourite of mine is A Matter of Life Death.

Been on Anytime for past couple of weeks, showing every other day on at least one of Sky Movie channels. Along with White Christmas.

No, since every opinion is as valid as the next one - minority or not.

Have you ever considered that posting stuff such as this makes you sound smug and condescending?

You're not alone. I loathe It's A Wonderful Life. Overrated, sickly mush - in my opinion. Give me Alastair Sim's 1951 Scrooge, any day.

And have you ever thought that if another poster disagrees with you, whether it reflects the consensus or not, his/her opinion is as equally valid as yours?

What a terrible, disrespectful attitude you have to other posters.

If you have Sky Movies it has been on several times in the last couple of weeks and will most likely be on again before Christmas day
