Christmas TV

Back in the old days, when we only had three channels (BBC1, BBC2 and ITV) we would have a choice of what to watch Christmas Day. Usualy there was a Bond film, and on the other side would be Wizard of Oz, or some such kind of film. Of course this was always after The Queen's Speech which was always watched by my parents and grandparents.

But the good stuff was after tea (meal at around 7ish)... The Morecombe and Wise Christmas special. OMG, how that made me laugh, classic slapstick comedy that never failed to reduce me to tears of laughter. And then, later, The Two Ronnies. I am sure a lot of the jokes were over my head, but I can say I was there the year Angela Rippon danced (and only if you are a Brit will you get that!).

Of course News at Ten meant supper, and then bed, and Christmas Day was over. :(

Do you remember TV shows from your childhood at Christmas?

  2. The Morecambe and Wise Show was Christmas - a ritual that everything revolved around!
    I too remember Angela Rippon - also Andre Previn for some reason!
