E.T.

Get set to deal with sniffly noses and tears on cheeks. And then make sure your kids eyes are dry too. This time of year, it’s pretty much a given that we’ll end up blubbing most days (carol concerts, nativity plays, even a Christmas card from the postman make us bawl), and, with this showing of Spielberg’s emotion-tugging alien flick E.T. might just have us on our knees. Kids adore it, whatever age they are. ITV1 4.50pm, Sunday. Trailer here
