This is Kenny Everett 's first show for the BBC and in it he will be doing several things we're not allowed to talk about and meeting several people we're not at liberty to divulge. The whole show is full of fantastic ingredients too numerous to describe. Suffice it to say everything will be completely original in as much as it's never been done before ... on the BBC. Join Kenny and the cast of thousands for the experience of a lifetime. Or, on the other hand, watch this show.

Heedless of mountainous seas and worsening weather, the passengers aboard the huge liner Poseidon celebrate New Year's Eve in the traditional fashion until their festivities are literally turned upside down. A freak wave has capsized the ship and for the small band of survivors of the initial disaster, the question is - can they escape from the floating death trap before it sinks to the bottom of the sea?

The story of the Christmas Truce Narrated by MARTIN JARVIS
On Christmas Eve 1914 on the Western Front, British and German soldiers sang carols to each other across a frosty, moonlit No Man's Land. The next morning, on Christmas Day, hundreds of men of both nations emerged from the trenches to talk, joke, take photographs and exchange souvenirs, in the most famous fraternisation of the First World War.
This remarkable event is remembered by three soldiers who took part: Graham Williams of the London Rifle Brigade; Leslie Walkinton of the Queen's Westminster Rifles and Albert Moren , of The Queen's Regiment.
And another truce of that war, on another front, is recalled by Dr Friedrich Kohn , former Medical Officer attached to the Hungarian Army.
