Five is to screen an evening of classic British sitcoms and the 1981 Morecambe and Wise Christmas Show on Boxing Day.

The evening kicks off with a 1970 edition of On The Buses, starring Reg Varney and the late Bob Grant, followed by a seasonal edition of Robin's Nest featuring Richard O'Sullivan and Tessa Wyatt.

Rising Damp, In Sickness and in Health and Only When I Laugh are also included in the evening.

Also to be broadcast is Carry On Christmas, a 1973 comedy remake of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, starring the regular Carry On team.

Sounds like a good day's viewing Net1, with perhaps the exception of "Only When I Laugh", seem to remember that I didn't think it was funny the first time round. :)

Hmm, strange that, I used to love "The Likely Lads", but every comedy that James Bolam did after that (in my opinion) seemed over acted, I liked his straight acting though, "When the Boat Comes In" was a classic.
