I remember watching this programme as a child ,Mary Parkinson, the presenter was married to the UK famous Michael Parkinson.

I recall my parents used to pay a small amount of money weekly throughout the year into a Christmas Hamper club which served us well over the festive period with delights only to be had at Christmas . I love the bit about the cockerel for Christmas lunch, my father used dispatch the it on Christmas Eve, I never liked that part of Christmas, but it never stopped me eating the chicken!

On Christmas morning there was always an orange, a handful of nuts and a three penny piece in the stocking. The main gift for all the family was the Compendium of games,everyone used to join in, real family stuff, no electronics back then

Happy memories :)
