    New Years films and programs in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus?

    Happy New Year everyone!

    What are the "classic" films and TV programs that Russian-speaking people watch over the New Year and Christmas holiday?

    What about elsewhere in the world, have you got any classic Christmas and New Year Holiday programs that you always watch?

    The best New Year TV-show on Russian TV is "Оливье Шоу" (1st channel) imho. Here some fragments from this year's show:

    Class Anna!!

    I only got some bits of the interview with the queen... But it was very funny! Didn't recognise some of the people she called.


    Her real speech is a Christmas tradition in England. Didn't watch it this year, but here it is. I agree with her view on the King James Bible..... and I DO admire her even though I am not a big monarchist.

    Btw, I thought you had LOTS of programs that are repeated every year in Russia, that's why I asked. Sounds like it's not that many after all.

    They make her speak like rural Russian old lady from northern areas (Kostroma, Vologda, and such), here is my translation:

    - Hello, Amsterdam!
    - Guten tag, Your Majesty! (This is Dick Advocat, Dutch coach of Russian national footbal team).
    - What are you doing?
    - Celebrating New Year!

    I like that video.... Russian folk costumes are soooo beautiful! The old folk traditions are probably what I find the most fascinating about Russia. I really like Russian folk music too - this way of jazzing it up a bit is really cool.

    Is this group quite famous then?
