Special 1 A Special Christmas Edition

  • 1974-12-24T00:00:00Z — 30 mins

Bob and Thelma are determined to enjoy the Christmas festivities to the full. Terry passes his driving test and drives Bob and Thelma to a Christmas party as their minicab driver, and waits for them outside. Inevitably, Terry creates a problem or two for Bob which starts the season off on quite the wrong foot.

Special 2 The Likely Lads

  • 1976-08-03T23:00:00Z — 30 mins

Bob and Thelma now live in a detached house, and Terry in a high-rise flat. Whilst Bob and Thelma are still married, Terry has a Finnish girlfriend called Christina (“Chris”).

As the film opens with the Lads lamenting the demolition of their favourite pub, The Fat Ox. The film then takes the two couples out of their familiar surroundings on holiday. Only this is no glamorous package holiday to Spain, it’s a caravanning holiday for Bob and Terry, accompanied by Thelma and Chris in Northumbria.

As you would expect complications arise and consequently Terry and Chris find themselves splitting up. Fed up Terry decides to go away, signing on as a crewman on a cargo ship.

Once again disaster strikes when Bob and Terry sneak one last late-night drink together aboard Terry’s ship, anchored in the docks. Terry has second thoughts the morning after and decides to stay at home. Bob, however, has no idea as he awakes – hung over – aboard the ship, just as it sets sail for Bahrain
