Mary-Poppins-Once again, if you’re after some Eastery or religious content to watch of the holiday weekend, you’re pretty much tough out of luck.  The closest you’re going to get is TV3′s Friday night movie, Hop and a few doco’s on History or NatGeo. And I almost forgot, another repeat of the Vicar of Dibley Easter Special at 20 past midnight (Saturday AM).

As far as movies go TV2 has a movie marathon all day while TV One kicks off with Mary Poppins this morning.
