Are You Being Served? - Episode List for Chrismas DVD
Posted by David Lambert
It's getting close to two months since we first brought you word abou the Sept. 27th release of Are You Being Served? - Christmas. We've known all along that there are 4 episodes on this release, but we didn't know which four they were (it's hard to look at the episode guide and find more than a couple of installments with an obvious Christmas theme). Now BBCAmerica has revealed the list of included stories:
"Christmas Crackers" - (12/22/75) Management solicits ideas on how to dress up the store to stimulate holiday sales.
"The Father Christmas Affair" - (12/24/76) The Christmas Display Unit, a mechanical Father Christmas, exhibits rather peculiar behavior.
"Happy Returns" - (12/26/78) It is Young Mr. Grace's birthday and the staff does their best to plan a more festive event than the usual free lunch in the canteen.
"The Punch and Judy Affair" - (12/26/79) After alienating themselves from the rest of Grace Brothers by not participating in a strike, the staff enacts a life-sized Punch and Judy show to try to get back in favor.
As an extra, there will also be a never-before-seen on-set interview with the cast of the show, in addition to the usual "Who's Who" of characters. Cost is $14.98 SRP.
