As ever, any broadcaster finds themselves doing lots of interviews about 'how to get through Christmas' or 'how to survive the extra stress levels'. Coupled with that is the inevitable interview about the sudden upsurge of suicide at this time of year, and even how the festive season ends, and the New Year begins, with rising numbers of people calling Relate to try and keep their marriage together, or ease its falling apart.
