This is an odd British film - Dinner for One - which is shown this time of the year in several European countries. Though never in Britain. The Germans, in particular, are big fans and presumably draw their concept of British humour from it. Anyway, here's a colour version. I can't tell what nationality the audience is but quite possibly it's British, at the live performance of 1963.

And here is the lustrous Judith Durham with a couple of seasonal songs: Silent Night and Just a Closer Walk with Thee And here she is singing Hark the Herald Angels Sing, just a year after a brain haemorrhage, at 70.

Finally, here's someone's idea of the worst outfits of 2014. I suspect many of us could come up with even worse examples.

Have a great day.

Most enjoyable. And as a matter of fact, my dear fellow: that butler looks a little like you, and he drinks like you, and - surprise surprise - he ALSO has a big dead cat lying around on the floor! Have you changed careers since 1963 perchance??

Oh, and incidentally: the audience may be German, as that is the logo of the Norddeutscherundfunk.
