Podcast 261: This is our Christmas Everest, Part Five – The Telly Addicts Christmas Special, 1989

by | Dec 5, 2020

Day five of the This Is Our Everest Advent calendar begins with an unsolicited and completely unrelated television recommendation, then our heroes get back to business and watch the 1989 Telly Addicts Christmas Special. Ian gazes on with horror and fascination at the career trajectory of Noel Edmonds, members of the general public are held up to open mockery and we find out how to go about getting to see 12 seconds of Victor Borge in 1989.

Edward is heartily disappointed by the lack of competitive purity and corinthian sporting values with which the contest is fought, while Ian’s joy at a brief gobbet of Are You Being Served? is made abundantly clear. If you’re Noel Edmonds and want to watch it all again, you can do so here.

Tomorrow morning there’s more of this sort of nonsense, with the Big Break Christmas Special from 1992.
