Carry On Blogging Christmas Countdown: 6 December

And so, once again December is upon us. This will be my first Christmas at the helm of Carry On Blogging so I wanted to go all out, bringing you a daily dose of festive Carry On cheer each day on the lead up to the 25th. 

So every day I will bring you another cracking Carry On photo with a festive theme. They will probably all be rather naughty, but hopefully all quite nice. 

Today, here's a classic image from the second Thames Television Carry On special, Carry On Again Christmas, broadcast in the run up to Christmas 1970. The show was based on the classic tale Treasure Island and boasted a cast of Sid James, Terry Scott, Barbara Windsor, Kenneth Connor, Charles Hawtrey and Bernard Bresslaw. Despite this list of legends, for me the 1970 special just doesn't come close to matching the previous festive episode. For a start it was broadcast in black and white, it wasn't written by Talbot Rothwell and it just doesn't quite come off. 

It does however feature a blink and you'll miss her cameo from future Carry On actress Carol Hawkins and a small supporting role for the lovely Wendy Richard, pictured above with Sid as Long John Silver...

What a Carry On at Christmas!
