For the people who lived through the Second World War the songs of 1939-45 will always have a special meaning. This week Cosmotheka perform the songs and tell the story of 1942. Producer JOHN LEONARD BBC Manchester
presents a bright-red Nightcap with white fluffy trim and a bobble on top. And a false beard -coloured ginger.
Heavily disguised as a red-nosed reindeer, the surprise star guest helps Arthur Smith consumer-test an alternative Christmas dinner with all the trimmings; there's live music from Cantabile; plus comedy and Yuletide horror as Death Rides the Airwaves - ho ho ho!

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
