Choice moments and festive fun from a decade of Britain's beloved comic duo, assembled from the BBC archives. Part of the 'Perfect Television Christmas'.

Christmas with Morecambe and Wise launched Angela Rippon's legs, Shirley Bassey's boots and Andre Previn's acting career. Some of our biggest stars would fight to appear - or not appear - in the plays that Ernie wrote.

This programme compiles the best and most fondly-remembered sketches from a decade of festive classics: 1969 - 1977.
