On the Second Day of Christmas, 1978

George and Mildred, an ITV comedy classic that still enjoys regular repeats on ITV3.  During it’s four year run came three Christmas Specials.

On the Second Day of Christmas was the final episode of series four, first screened in 1978 when there were two series screened in that year.


Having had an extremely boring and non-eventful Christmas Day, George and Mildred spend next day with the Fourmiles where George and Jeffrey become addicted to Tristram’s present, a video game, which sees George losing money.

Ethel and Humphrey arrive for an exchange of presents but George and Mildred don’t have any presents for them.
