The Dick Emery Christmas Show: For Whom The Jingle Bells Toll, 1980

An all star cast gather for a special festive offering from Dick Emery.


Dick Emery stars as a London gangland boss who has invited two rival London gangs to gather for a Christmas Party in the house of Sir Henry Jarvis Brooke, who whilst spending time in the South of France is blissfully unaware of the goings on.

However the unlikely idea of top London gang rivals enjoying a festive knees up has sinister undertones.  Murder is on the menu as two hitmen have been hired to bump off the two rival gangs.  Unwittingly classic characters Bovver Boy and his Dad find themselves mistaken for the hitmen…
