Those Radio Times Advent Calendar: It's Cliff Richard

Years before Cliff dominated the Christmas pop charts with number one hits, you could usually find him on our TV screens at some point in the Yuletide season either guesting or hosting a seasonal TV special.

1971 found Cliff fronting the first of a new series of his variety music show It's Cliff Richard with guests Olivia Newton John, Labi Siffre, The Flirtations and The New Seekers.

There was also a special guest appearance from Till Death Us Do Part's Dandy Nicholls, no doubt on hand to give Cliff a sharp telling off for replacing series regular Una Stubbs (Nicholls' screen daughter in Till Death) with Olivia Newton John, due to Stubbs recent departure as she was due to give birth to her son Christian on Christmas Day!

I hope you've enjoyed our trawl over various programmes on BBC Radio and TV over the last 24 days... may i take this opportunity to wish all readers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New 2014!
