    The Top New Years day Film watched in Germany

    Dinner for one.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9rhMWC4mqQ

    Freddy Frinton & May Warden.

    Dinner for oneThis would be the end of the story of a not very well remembered English comedian, were there not a surprising postscript. In 1963, Frinton's Dinner for One was recorded by the Norddeutscher Rundfunk (NDR) German television station, and bizarrely, watching the unsubtitled English language sketch on television subsequently has become a German New Year's Eve tradition, with the short seeing multiple repeats every year from 1972 onwards.[4][5] The role of Miss Sophie was played by May Warden.
    The television cult also caught on in Scandinavia and Dinner for One has been a hugely popular permanent, mandatory institution on Danish, Finnish and Swedish television on New Year's Eve for many years, as well in Belgium in the original version. It became so popular that a Dutch version was made with the Dutch actor Joop Doderer for Dutch viewers. It is also shown every 23 December on the Norwegian television, (NRK) and has been shown on the Australian SBS television network on New Year's Eve for at least the last fifteen years. Interestingly the programme and its main actor Frinton are far less well known in Britain than in any of these countries.
    Ironically for an actor whose roles often comprised playing a drunk, Frinton was a teetotaller, having seen in others the damage that alcohol could do.

    If you've never seen this before, you will piss yourself!

    Swedish Television send this every New Years Eve. Have been doing so for as long as I can remember, and the first time I saw it was 1975. They really go a bundle on it

    Apparently there is a new -German- version...

    Just looked it up. They have been sending it every New Years Eve since 1969. 19:45 hrs to 20:00 again this New Years Eve

    This is the version they send every year. English with Swedish subtitles

    The family used to watch Freddie and Thora Hird in that early 60s sitcom "meet the wife". It was one of the few occasions that I remember the grown ups laughing together. Naturally I was too young to get the jist of what it was all about.Freddie as a drunken sailor asking for a light to his busted cigarette was good clean fun and being the professional comedian that he was , he knew how to milk it for maximum laughs.
