Are You Being Served -The Father Christmas Affair – 1976 Christmas Special
Another gem from the golden era of comedy courtesy of the staff at Grace Brothers in a festive edition from series 4 of the long running classic BBC comedy.
Grace Brothers decides to have electric Father Christmas models, but this is soon cancelled when they go wrong in a way that could only happen on Are You Being Served.
Young Mr. Grace then decides to offer £50 to a member of the department, including Mr. Rumbold, to dress up as Father Christmas and give gifts to the children. Young Mr. Grace gets a young boy to decide which one of the staff will be Father Christmas.
Meanwhile, Mr. Grainger is worried about his annual performance to entertain the residents of an old people’s home.
