This video contains the complete 1980 Christmas show with special guests Peter Barkworth, Jill Gascoine, Hannah Gordon, Glenda Jackson, Mick McManus, Peter Vaughan and Sir Alec Guinness.

Taken from the Thames archive, this video features Eric and Ern in a series of sketches gags and dances. There are a couple of running gags such as carol singing outside No. 10 Downing Street and Peter Cushing still chasing payment for the show he did 10 years ago. Other highlights include Eric the peg, with Eric trying to do an impression of Rolf Harris and the funny Ventriloquist routine.

Although not as funny as the BBC shows, this is still worth watching and still manages to bring a smile to your face today.

Guests:
Peter Barkworth, Jill Gascoine, Hannah Gordon, Glenda Jackson, Mick McManus, Peter Vaughan and Sir Alec Guinness.
