Carol For Another Christmas – Tom Secker on PPR

Published December 24th 2016

Pearse invited me on his radio show to discuss the 1964 TV movie A Carol for Another Christmas. This was the first in a series of TV films designed to promote the United Nations and sponsored by the Xerox corporation. A Carol for Another Christmas is a remake of A Christmas Carol, only this time the protagonist’s three visions (of Christmases past, present and future) convince him to abandon his isolationist beliefs and embrace the UN’s vision of international affairs.

Presumably that’s because the UN thinks that actually empowering women and girls is best associated with quasi-feminist fantasies in comic books. Is this just a DC Studios marketing campaign? This is a bit of a rant.
