The 1971 Morecambe & Wise Christmas Show

Today we like to share a Christmas show with you from 1971 where Shirley Bassey appeared as a special guest on the Morecambe and Wise show.
This performance is also available on DVD now. From 1969 till 1980, with the exception of 1974, the show had end-of-year Christmas specials, which became such an institution during the 1970s that few British families would dream of missing them. The clip is being released on DVD  and the quality is very good. It is a 3 DVD package with region code 2 for Europe.

Dame Shirley always says in interviews that this performance is one of her all time favourites. She told that she could not stop laughing during the rehearsals and she thought she would not be able to perform.  In the end when the actual recordings took place she managed to keep a straight face though, being the professional as she is.

****************************************

A photographic collage of 90 famous Britons has been unveiled in honour of the Queen’s 90th birthday.

The birthday card, littered with stars from the stage and screen, was created by renowned portrait photographer Alistair Morrison.

Morrison told ITV News the picture was his “legacy”, as he had personally chosen all of the subjects.

He said: “It’s people that have been part of my life, it’s very interesting that if you ask anybody at a dinner table who would be their 90 great Britons, they might have a completely different idea.”

Morrison’s celebrity montage is a light-hearted take on Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper, with each of the famous faces musing over the concept of what makes Briton great.

The stars include The Who’s Roger Daltrey, singer Dame Shirley Bassey, as well as actor Colin Firth and world number one tennis ace Andy Murray.

Great British Bake Off judge Mary Berry was also included, and was asked what makes a ‘great’ Briton.

She said: “I think it’s someone who’s surely proud to be in Great Briton and loyal to the country”.
