TG4 publish their movie line-up for the Christmas period

Shrek as Gaeilge.

TG4 has put out their line-up of movies for Christmas week and some of them will be perfect family viewing for your days off over the season.

There's also what's sure to be the spectacle of the Irish language version of Shrek, wherein Eddie Murphy's character is presumably named Asal and Shrek's Scottish accent is replaced by some strange Irish equivalent.

Shrek (as Gaeilge) will be shown at 5.20pm on Christmas Day, followed by an Irish classic in Into The West at 6.55pm.

There'll be no problem getting the kids to settle down on Christmas Eve with Dr. Seuss film The Lorax on at 5.20pm, and for anyone staying up for Santa Clause, Dirty Dancing will be starting at 11pm.

Here are the other 12 movies that TG4 will be showing this Christmas.
