The Morecambe And Wise Show Christmas television specials became such an institution that few families would dream of missing them - the 1977 special alone attracted nearly half the UK population. Running from 1969 until 1977, the BBC One Christmas TV shows featured famous guests such as Angela Rippon, Glenda Jackson and André Previn, being made fun of by Eric and Ernie in their inimitable style.

Liza Tarbuck takes a look back at these Christmas specials, celebrating with classic clips from the archive and contributions from those who worked with Eric and Ernie. These include light entertainment producers John Ammonds and Jim Moir; the latter worked with Mike Yarwood and Bruce Forsyth before being appointed controller of BBC Radio 2.
