Dawnfletch, I would gladly record programs and send them to you, but our television systems are incompatible.

"A Christmas List" Hmm... could it be The Christmas List ? If so I also enjoy this move & have watched it many times.

The Christmas List is a 1997 TV movie, shown first on The Family Channel, but currently on the ABC Family during their The 25 Days of Christmas Special. This was the first film ever made for the 25 Days of Christmas Special.

Synopsis
The story follows the life of the 35-year-old Melody Parris (Played by Mimi Rogers), a skilled perfume girl, who is living a somewhat flavorless life in Seattle, with a pompous, pushy boyfriend named George and an overbearing mother who lives right next door to her, who is obsessed with her getting married. It starts with another unsatisfactory day at work for Melody, but on the bus, her best friend Naomi tells her to make a christmas list for selfish fun. She starts to but receives a call from George, who is on a flight home from a business trip. During a talk with her mother that evening, she asks her if they could try to make their Christmas "Dickens-Style"; however her mother is reluctant to do this. Another neighbor's daughter, Amber Mottola, is a supermodel, and her mother harps on how Melody's sister is married, and so Melody storms out, saying that she's sorry she's not anything that makes her mother proud, missing her mother saying that she is proud. The next day at work, Melody is passed over for a promotion to the head of the perfume department at the department store where she works for a younger, less skilled co-worker, April, who's main objective is to sell, not to serve. Melody finally decides to finish her christmas list, and the next day, she takes it and puts it in Santa's Mailbox at the department store. Then, things begin to change. She meets Danny, a boy who wants to buy a perfume that was similar to the smell of his mother, and when he can't pay the full amount, Melody loans him the rest, and he puts her name, along with his, on the entry form in a sweepstakes at the store to win a new car. Danny drags his father to attend the drawing for the car, and his father is surprised when Danny and Melody win. Melody gets into trouble because store employees cannot enter drawings, but Danny explains the mixup and pledges to give her the car until he can drive. Melody is attracted to Danny's father, Dr. David Skylar, and while she gives them the car, her boyfriend intervenes and they work out a schedule so that they can share the car, which offers opportunities for Melody and Dr. Skylar to start to share a close bond. That same night, a tree appears in Melanie's apartment, and Melody's mother changes as well, becoming more maternal and says that the whole family is going to be celebrating Christmas Dickens-style. When Danny goes to make another payment on the perfume, he asks Melody to go to lunch with him, and George comes as well. However, at lunch Melody and George argue, resulting in Melody pouring a bowl of Creme Brulee onto George's lap. A woman named Faith is dating Dr. Skylar and wants to eliminate any competition, so she fakes her engagement to Dr. Skylar, buying a fake ring and bragging to Melody. Upset, Melody gives the car to the Skylars to keep. When George proposes clumsily, Melody declines, and when they start to fight, Melody's mother recoils at George, and we find out she put the tree in Melanie's apartment, and acted the way she did because she wanted for her daughter to know that she was proud of her. David finds out about Faith's treachery and dumps her. He and Danny drive to Melody's apartment building where David proposes and Melody accepts, much to Danny's delight and approval.
Throughout the movie, Melody starts getting other things on her list that she wanted, whether it be fuzzy slippers, or wanting her family to celebrate Christmas Dickens Style. But she slowly realizes that while getting everything she wants, repercussions are inevitable, and she realizes that what you want is not always what you need. As she starts to fill up the holes from the list, she begins a new life with David and Danny.

An American Christmas Carol is this the one you are talking about ? If this is it is for sale many places in the US. The only issue I could see is if your player is set to just your region, most are. Some are region free & will play videos from anywhere.

Movie Description
This American version of Dicken's immortal classic takes place in a small New England town during the time of the Great Depression. The greedy president of a finance company learns Christmas lessons about love and generosity.

Cast:Chris Wiggins, David Wayne, Dorian Harewood, Henry Winkler, R.H. Thomson, Susan Hogan
