A Clydeside Carol is, not surprisingly, a retelling of "A Christimas Carol" which starred the legendary Scots commedian Chic Murray in, I believe, his second last television appearance (it was eventually shown several years after his death). Chic plays a Glasgow tramp of ill temper as the Scrooge character and Jeff Rawle as his friend.
The video quality isn't great, but it is a little piece of British television history, and a significant piece of Scottish comedy history.
