The Christmas holiday is charged with nostalgia and hope, so a Christmas setting can effectively heighten the emotional power of any story.

There have been many Christmas scenes in movies and host David Garland unwraps some of the accompanying music for them. Holiday favorites such as "It's a Wonderful Life," "Miracle On 34th Street" and "The Bishop's Wife" are included.
