This Day in History: 1983-12-30

The final edition of The Good Old Days airs on BBC One (titled Goodbye to The Good Old Days).

Radio Times: “Written and narrated by Barry Cryer. With Roy Hudd, Frankie Vaughan, Les Dawson and Larry Grayson. After 30 years of rollickingly rumbustious revelling risibility the renowned The Good Old Days roars to the end of its final run. To mark the occasion, we visit the Leeds City Varieties for a look behind the scenes at the world’s longest-running television variety show.”

Worth noting that BBC One broadcast A Farewell Celebration of The Good Old Days the following evening.
