A bit more life this year. The theme was "A Partridge In A Pear Tree" and our noble bird would fly in and out of his tree. There were day and night-time versions. Charles Nove made novel use of the fly-off on Holiday Tuesday, introducing "The Eagle Has Landed". His announcement was legendary - "and since The Eagle Has Landed I think our little partridge had best be off!" (partridge exits)
