This was the BBC's annual celebration of all of the best of its' output, screened at peak viewing time on Christmas Night. This edition, screen in 1964, is hosted by Jack Warner, otherwise known as Dixon of Dock Green. Each edition had a 5-10 minute segment from each star or series, and these specials were on most years from 1958-72. It was based on the specials called 'Television's Christmas Party', which ran from 1951-54.

The Likely Lads
Written by Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais, who also wrote 'Porridge' and 'Auf Weidersehen Pet', this cheerful sitcom about two working class blokes, Bob Ferris (Rodney Bewwes) and Terry Collier (James Bolam) in the North East of England ran in 3 series of 6-8 epsiodes from 16/12/64 until 23/07/66. However, the audience wanted more, and a sequel series, with Bob Ferris now married, was made in colour, titled 'Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads', that ran in two series of 13 episodes from 09/01/73 to 24/12/74. Finally, the team produced a 1976 feature film.
