Bill Murray in Groundhog Day

Today (2 February) is Groundhog Day, the traditional Pennsylvania holiday lived over and over by Bill Murray in the 1993 comedy of the same name.

The schedulers over at Sky sensed an opportunity and are planning on airing the film. Not just once or twice, mind - they're airing the film 13 times in a row.

If you're a die-hard Groundhog Day fan, you'll want to set your alarm for 6:40 AM - that's when the first showing is due to begin - and be prepared to remain awake for quite some time; the final airing is due to finish a whole 24 hours later.

If it's Sonny and Cher's "I Got You Babe" that wakes you up first thing, however, might we suggest you cancel those marathon plans.

The cult comedy was directed by the late Harold Ramis and follows Bill Murray's weatherman who is caught in a time warp, doomed to relive the same day over until he gets it right.
