When there was something decent on tv at Christmas
Featuring the full Two Ronnies Christmas Specials from 1982, 1984 and 1987 as well as the 1973 Old Fashioned Christmas Mystery and their appearance in the 1972 Christmas Night with the Stars.
Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett's magnificent partnership became a cherished British institution. Their Christmas Specials were particularly eagerly awaited and, for many, they were the highlight of the festive television schedules. The 1987 Christmas Special proved to be The Two Ronnies last ever full show together, but by then they had left so many cherished memories.
The Christmas Specials featured extra special guests - such as Elton John, David Essex and Elaine Paige - and great Christmas fun, as well as the regular Two Ronnies fare of the opening and closing new headlines, party, allotment and pub sketches and Ronnie Corbett's shaggy dog monologues.
This collection will bring back all the memories of those shows including such highlights as Chas and Dave; The Milkman's Christmas Address To The Nation; Christmas Day In The Ukon; Game For A Trial; The Tree - an Extra-Festival encounter of the Christmas Kind and Pinnochio II - Killer Doll.
