Holiday Startime

An hour-long Christmas variety show hosted by Maggie Fitzgibbon and with something for everyone – although the modern viewer is cautioned to watch it whilst under the influence. The cavalcade of guest names reads like a Who's Who of late-60s variety, from Les Dawson and Thora Hird to The Bee Gees and Reg Varney. Vincent Price gamely shows us how to get the best from our Christmas left-overs, but unfortunately the act is somewhat toe curling. It climaxes with surprise special guest Hattie Jacques, as a Christmas fairy, slapping a custard pie in his face.
