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.
