R&S Christmas List

This culled from The Bookseller's website:

Cactus TV has revealed the first 20 books selected for this year's Richard & Judy Christmas Presents book strand, which will begin its five-week run on 19th November on their UKTV Watch show "Richard & Judy's New Position".

Serious non-fiction is a new category for this year with the children's picture-book category as an alternative to last year's one-off "Richard & Judy's Best Kids' Books Ever" programme.

The books featuring in the sixth category, "Celebrity Autobiography", have yet to be announced. Each week the chosen book will be reviewed, and the celebrity will join Richard and Judy in the studio to help review the week's category.
