Possibly not worth us going into too much detail on this, as we suspect it’ll disappear from Y’Tube before long, but here we have (in full) Les Dawson’s Christmas Box, Dawson’s hour-long Christmas special from 1974.

It features Roy Barraclough, Kenny Ball and His Jazzmen, Gilbert O’Sullivan, and in a neat link to yesterday’s post, John Cleese, seen here playing – oh yes – a short tempered hotel manager dealing with a difficult customer at “the Hotel Splendide”.
