Christmas 1978 Style

Welcome to the special Christmas edition of the podcast celebrating what it was like to grow up as a child in 1970’s Britain and the central part that television played in our lives.

We travel back to Christmas 1978 and our host Oliver explores the TV schedules with Stuart, a regular listener and contributor to the podcast. As well as several familiar shows, we ask why was Pam Ayres in Hong Kong for Christmas and why was Holiday On Ice, erm on ice? Can you remember what the Christmas number one was, as revealed by Noel Edmunds on Christmas Top of the Pops and do you remember the scandal surrounding the BBC paying millions of pounds for the rights to show The Sound of Music on television? All this and more, including Morecambe and WiseMike Yarwood and, inevitably, Benny Hill. We also hear some heartwarming memories of Christmas in Yorkshire from our listener Gillian.
