3.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Housewife 17 Feb 2010
I bought this DVD because I thought it would be helpful in planning an organised Christmas (is there such a thing?). However I discovered that it is actually one of the weekly programmes from her series which has a Christmas theme. It was enjoyable and I picked up a few hints BUT it's not really what I expected.

3.0 out of 5 stars Perfect (in that red outfit) 6 Nov 2009
If you're a guy who want's a woman to hang around for more than a day or two, you need the clues given in this DVD to help you "achieve". Women don't associate with slobs so consider this DVD to be something of a training manual. Even if you already do clean the bath and place the toilet seat in the down position there's still more to know and what better way to learn than spending 50 minutes with Anthea, 'cos let's face it fellas ... you would, wouldn't you?

This was originally shown on BBC3 in 2006 and then on BBC2 in 2007.
The programme shows Lara and Emma (two young mums) how to host their first Christmas dinner. Anthea's perfect Christmas is probably how most people would like their Christmas to be! However she does understand that not everyone has either the time, money or even the inclination! But she shows us the value of Christmas time spent baking with the children, making gift tags etc. Althogh I've not done any of the things that were on the show itself, when I've done home-made rather than shop-bought it's so much more rewarding. But more time-consuming!
I've watched this episode numerous times and have never tired of it. I might even get round to following her advice next Christmas! It's very entertaining and she doesn't preach to the women either. However if you don't like Anthea Turner I'd advise you to give it a miss!

Some very useful tips for the 'perfect Christmas' although you need to just pick out the relevant bits. We do not all have the money or the time to follow everything she recommends. However, it is a good reference book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Before you buy this one 12 July 2012

There are two reasons I gave this only three stars. One, the entire dvd is included in Series Two, which I also bought, so I bought the same thing twice. If I had looked further, I might have seen that, but I didn't catch. Maybe because it wasn't easy to catch. The second reason was that I was hoping for more! I wasn't wanting to see yet another contest between two house keepers, even though I did enjoy the Christmas special one, which was this one. I was hoping for more of a *real* special - a longer program where Anthea would go through a several month plan in getting slobs like me ready for a "perfect Christmas" and in time for December 1, so the entire month of December could be relaxed and enjoyed with family and friends. This dvd has the two competitors just as all the others have, only they are going from ruin to a crowning Christmas meal. It contains a quiz, with questions from all the episodes. It also contains "top tips" in a written form, rather than Anthea talking herself.
