DECEMBER 1979: Episodes 3222 – 3237

Click HERE to return to the main menu

 

 Episode Numbers on this page were also calculated “back” from Episode 3235 (25-12-79). This is the famous “We Need a Little Christmas” sing-along that was released by Network DVD. It was very clearly designed as a Christmas Day episode – and the Granada TV Listing confirms events, while the VT Clock is also visible on the DVD.

Some data on this page refers to “Production Office Paperwork”, which is direct from ATV TX logs.
