Morecambe & Wise Thames Christmas Special - 25th December 1980
Eric & Ernie have persuaded Alec Guiness to appear in their show - he doesn't know what he's in for!
Also the world premiere of Ernie Wises's rewritten version of Shakespear's 'Hamlet' - an improvement of course.
With Peter Barkworth, another newcomer, playing Hamlet, Hannah Gorden as Ophelia, Ernie as Claudius, the King, and Eric as a none-too-convincing ghost.
With: - Peter Cushing, Jill Gasgoine, Gemma Craven, Sir Alec Guiness, Glenda Jackson, Peter Vaughn.
This is the last Christmas show from the first Thames DVD release, hopefully it won't be too long until Thames release volume two.
In the meantime the BBC will be releasing series 4 within the next couple of weeks, so I will get those up here as soon as the DVD lands on my mat :-)
