This video contains a collection of clips from the Thames Christmas shows, slightly shorter than the other Thames video, but still packed with gags and sketches.

Starting off with Eric and Ern trying to sneak the Royal family into their show, only to have them stolen by Eamonn Andrews, it moves along to their usual show opening.

Highlights include Leonard Rossiter who does a black and white parody of the Andrew Sisters and a great sketch in a pet shop.

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:
Leonard Rossiter, Eamonn Andrews, Glenda Jackson and Sir Harold Wilson.
