The Alan Partridge Playmates dance troupe performs a very special routine to open the show.

7 Knowing Me, Knowing Yule
12/29/95
Alan presents a Christmas special from a studio replica of his own front room. BBC chief commissioning editor Tony Hayers is pressed on whether there will be a second series and there is a world record attempt as 'Alan's Massive Cracker' is pulled live on air. Sadly, the big finale featuring Alan Partridge in a pear tree is ruined by the smouldering cracker and Alan lashes out, punching Tony Hayers in the face with a turkey.

About this show

Alan Partridge puts the chat among the pigeons as he hosts his very own TV show. Among the celebrity pigeons he 'plucks', or talks to, are Keith Hunt, the new presenter of This Is Your Life, French chef Michael Lambert, the finalists of Miss Norwich, and Hot Pants, the sexiest dance act in northern Europe. Alan is also strapped to the 'Wheel of Death' as Tony Le Mesmer throws daggers at him, he presents gifts from 'Alan's Big Pocket', and fires a pistol with disastrous consequences live on air.

Very poor chat show. The so called comedian Mr. Partridge brought on ruined a very good Swedish Fred Flintstone joke and then the host killed a man for goodness sake. Definitely not lovely stuff (not my words, words of Shakin' Stevens). I cannot call myself a F.O.P. after watching this dirgepipe.
