What We Just Watched: Christmas Special 2017

This Christmas, we join Ian and Graham, who despite rejecting (and, in at least one case, being instrumental in having banned) the practice of ‘Secret Santa’ in the workplace, slip each other an undisclosed festive-themed TV show, watch each of them, and then have quite a long chat.

This special episode includes: “The friendly fellow with the mellow bellow!”

In a TV Cream ‘first’, we’re going to direct you to YouTube links of the two shows discussed. You can click through now, and spoil the surprise, or come back later to take a look.

    There’s a part of the Opportunity Knocks 1971 final on YouTube wherein Hughie refers to someone as “the fellow with the mellow bellow”, and Google says it was used to describe someone on US radio (and for the title of a Billy Bragg bootleg), so while it’s possible Tel came up with the line independently it had been a phrase in use.
