In the September episode (just!), I explore all things Father Christmas to give you a real festive Ber month episode! I explore the history of the British Father Christmas figure, an episode of 70s sitcom Are You Being Served called The Father Christmas Affair, and The Kinks' rocking class attack track, Father Christmas.
