All Star Comedy Carnival (12) is available to own on DVD from 5 December 2016, RRP £14.99, courtesy of Network Distributing.
An annual television event for five years from 1969, All Star Comedy Carnival was ITV's annual "Christmas bonus" – presenting viewers with brand-new sketches from the network's most popular sitcoms of any given year. A highlight of the festive viewing period, only two editions still exist: those for 1972 and 1973. There's a clip at the link above.
This set presents both complete shows, comprising specially written festive sketches for 13 classic series:
• Love Thy Neighbour • On the Buses • Christmas with Wogan • Nearest and Dearest • Thirty Minutes Worth • Sez Les • The Fenn Street Gang • Father Dear Father • Man About the House • My Good Woman • Billy Liar • Spring and Autumn • Doctor in Charge
