late and great Mick Ronsin. Don't you get me all that jive about-

:19:47.:19:55.

Now, I'm the guy named Kurtis Blow So every year, just about this time

:19:55.:20:05.

'Bout a red-suited dude with a friendly attitude

:20:05.:20:07.

And a sleigh full of goodies for for the people on the block

:20:07.:20:09.

Got a long white beard Maybe looks kinda weird

:20:09.:20:11.

And if you ever see him He could give you a quite shock

:20:11.:20:18.

People, let me tell ya about last year

:20:18.:20:20.

When the dude came flying over here

:20:20.:20:22.

Well, the hawk was out Snow was on the ground

:20:22.:20:24.

Folks stayed in to party down

:20:24.:20:27.

The beat was thumping on the box and I was dancing in my socks

:20:27.:20:31.

And the drummer played at a solid pace

:20:31.:20:33.

And a taste of the bass was in my face

:20:33.:20:42.

And the guitar player laid down a heavy layer

:20:42.:20:44.

Of the funky, junky rhythm of the disco feet

:20:44.:20:50.

Check it out, New York

:20:50.:20:51.

And the guy with the 88s started to participate

:20:51.:20:53.

And I could sure appreciate a sound so sweet

:20:53.:21:00.

We were all in the mood So we had a little food

:21:00.:21:02.

And a joke, and a smoke and a little bit of wine

:21:02.:21:04.

When I thought I heard a hoof on the top of the roof

:21:04.:21:06.

Could it be or was it me? I was feeling super fine

:21:06.:21:08.

So I went to the atticWhere I thought I heard the static

:21:09.:21:11.

On the chance that it was somebody breaking in

:21:11.:21:13.

But the noise on the top was a reindeer clop

:21:13.:21:15.

Just a trick Saint Nick And I let the sucker in

:21:15.:21:22.

He was roly, he was poly and I said, "Holy moly

:21:22.:21:24.

"You got a lot of whiskers on your chinny-chin-chin"

:21:24.:21:29.

I said, "You're right It's cold tonight

:21:29.:21:31.

"But can you stop for a drop before you go?"

:21:31.:21:33.

He said, "Why not If the music's hot

:21:33.:21:35.

"And I'll chance to dance beneath the mistletoe"

:21:35.:21:39.

And before he went This fine old gent

:21:39.:21:42.

Found a gift with a sift through his big red bags

:21:42.:21:45.

And the grown-ups got some presents too

:21:45.:21:48.

A new TV and a stereo

:21:48.:21:51.

A new Seville 'bout as blue as the sky

:21:51.:21:53.

The best that money couldn't buy

:21:53.:21:55.

Cos the dude in red's back at the pole

:21:55.:21:57.

Up north, where everything is cold

:21:57.:22:00.

But if he were right here tonight he'd say, "Merry Christmas"

:22:00.:22:04.

And to all

:22:04.:22:06.

Get down, stop messing around when Kurtis Blow is in your town

:22:06.:22:11.

I'm pretty dope on the microphone A place called Harlem was my home

:22:11.:22:15.

I was rocking one day and started to shake

:22:15.:22:17.

It sound to me like a earthquake

:22:17.:22:20.

I packed my bags, I said goodbye

:22:20.:22:22.

I kissed my woman and I started to fly

:22:22.:22:24.

I came to Earth by a meteorite to rock you all on the mike

:22:24.:22:29.

So kick off your shoes Let your fingers pop

:22:29.:22:31.

Kurtis Blow's just about ready to rock

:22:31.:22:33.

Now, the people in the back If you're not the whack, say...

:22:33.:22:36.

Don't stop the body rock

:22:36.:22:38.

The people up front If you want to bump, say...

:22:38.:22:40.

Don't stop the body rock

:22:40.:22:43.

The people in the middle If you want the rhythm, say...

:22:43.:22:45.

Don't stop the body rock

:22:45.:22:47.

And the people on the side If you want to slide, say...

:22:47.:22:49.

Don't stop the body rock

:22:49.:22:51.

Now, the preacher or a teacher or a electrician

:22:51.:22:53.

A fighter or a writer or a politician

:22:53.:22:56.

But the man with the key to your ignition

:22:56.:22:57.

Kurtis Blow is competition

:22:57.:23:00.

Yo, ladies, shock the houseYoung ladies, rock shock the house

:23:00.:23:04.

You see Just throw your hands in the air

:23:04.:23:06.

And wave 'em like you just don't care

:23:07.:23:09.

If you really ready to rock the house this morning

:23:09.:23:11.

Somebody say, "Oh, yeah..."

:23:11.:23:19.

Why

:23:19.:23:20.

Why the

:23:20.:23:21.

Why the backdrop

:23:21.:23:25.

Why the backdrop consisted of the TV air conditioning duct, I

:23:25.:23:30.

couldn't say. Curtis, this is how to do it.

more than you can say for this one. Kids you probably hear your parents

:33:15.:33:23.

or grand parents rattle on about # His name was Ernie and he drove

:33:23.:33:28.

# She lived all alone in Liddley Lane at number 22

:33:28.:33:31.

# They said she was too good for him She was haughty, proud and chic

:33:31.:33:34.

# But Ernie got his cocoa there three times every week

:33:34.:33:38.

# They called him Ernie

:33:38.:33:40.

# Ernie

:33:40.:33:42.

# And he drove the fastest milk cart in the west

:33:42.:33:45.

# She said she'd like to bathe in milk

:33:45.:33:47.

# He said "All right, sweetheart"

:33:47.:33:49.

# And when he'd finished work one night

:33:49.:33:51.

# He loaded up the cart

:33:51.:33:53.

# He said, "Do you want it pasteurized

:33:53.:33:54.

# "Cos pasteurized is best?"

:33:54.:33:56.

# She says, "Ernie, I'll be happy if it comes up to my chest"

:33:56.:34:01.

# That tickled old Ernie Ernie

:34:01.:34:04.

# And he drove the fastest milk cart in the west

:34:04.:34:09.

# Now, Ernie had a rival An evil-looking man

:34:09.:34:13.

# Called Two-Ton Ted from Teddington and he drove the baker's van

:34:13.:34:17.

# He tempted her with his treacle tarts and his tasty wholemeal bread

:34:17.:34:20.

# And when she seen the size of his hot meat pies

:34:20.:34:22.

# It very near turned her head

:34:22.:34:25.

# She nearly swooned at his macaroon and he said

:34:25.:34:27.

# "If you treat me right

:34:27.:34:29.

# "You'll have hot rolls every morning and crumpets every night"

:34:29.:34:32.

# He knew once she sampled his layer cake, he'd have his wicked way

:34:32.:34:36.

# And all Ernie had to offer was a pint of milk a day

:34:36.:34:40.

# Poor Ernie Ernie

:34:40.:34:43.

# And he drove the fastest milk cart in the west

:34:43.:34:49.

# One lunchtime, Ted saw Ernie's horse and cart outside her door

:34:49.:34:52.

# It drove him mad to find it was still there at half past four

:34:52.:34:56.

# And as he leapt down from his van

:34:56.:34:58.

# Hot blood through his veins did course

:34:58.:35:00.

# And he went across to Ernie's cart and didn't half kick his horse

:35:00.:35:04.

# Whose name was Trigger Trigger

:35:04.:35:07.

# And he pulled the fastest milk cart in the west

:35:07.:35:11.

# Now, Ernie rushed out into the street, his gold top in his hand

:35:11.:35:14.

# He said, "If you wanna marry Susie You'll fight for her like a man"

:35:14.:35:18.

# "Oh, why don't we play cards for her?" he sneeringly replied

:35:18.:35:22.

# "And just to make it interesting We'll have a shilling on the side"

:35:22.:35:26.

# Now, Ernie dragged him from his van and beneath the blazing sun

:35:27.:35:30.

# They stood there face to face and Ted went for his bun

:35:30.:35:34.

# But Ernie was too quick, things didn't go the way Ted planned

:35:34.:35:37.

# And a strawberry-flavoured yogurt sent it spinning from his hand

:35:37.:35:42.

# Now, Susie ran between them and tried to keep them apart

:35:42.:35:45.

# And Ernie, he pushed her aside

:35:45.:35:47.

# And a rock cake caught him underneath his heart

:35:48.:35:49.

# And he looked up in pained surprise

:35:49.:35:51.

# And the concrete hardened crust of a stale pork pie

:35:51.:35:54.

# Caught him in the eye and Ernie bit the dust

:35:54.:35:56.

# Poor Ernie Ernie

:35:57.:36:00.

# And he drove the fastest milk cart in the west

:36:00.:36:06.

# Ernie was only 52 He didn't wanna die

:36:06.:36:11.

# Now he's gone to make deliveries in that milk round in the sky

:36:11.:36:14.

# Where the customers are angels and ferocious dogs are banned

:36:15.:36:18.

# And the milkman's life is full of fun in that fairy, dairy land

:36:18.:36:23.

# But a woman's needs are manifold and soon she married Ted

:36:23.:36:29.

# But strange things happened on their wedding night

:36:29.:36:32.

# As they lay in their bed

:36:32.:36:33.

# Was that the trees a-rustling? Or the hinges of the gate?

:36:33.:36:39.

# Or Ernie's ghostly gold tops a-rattling in their crate?

:36:39.:36:43.

# They won't forget Ernie... #

Mark Radcliffe digs deep into the Top of the Pops archives to deliver 90 minutes of some familiar and unfamiliar festive footage treats of yore and unseen Christmas delights from the BBC library.

Straight from the BBC vaults, classic Christmas hits from the likes of Roy Wood's Wizzard and 70s glam heroes Slade to the smooth 80s vibe of Wham!'s Last Christmas, the melancholic duet of Fairy Tale of New York by Shane MacGowan and Kirsty MacColl plus from the Welsh Elvis Shakin' Stevens, his enduring number one Christmas hit Merry Christmas Everyone.

Three Beatles are also represented with Paul's catchy Wonderful Christmas Time from 1979, some rare footage of Ringo romping in the snow performing his 1971 solo hit It Don't Come Easy and John and Yoko's abiding anti war protest song Happy Xmas (War Is Over).

Plus a rare treat with previously lost footage of David Bowie performing The Jean Genie from Top of the Pops in 1973.

From more recent times, Coldplay make an appearance with their Christmas hit from last year and Adele delivers a very sparkly performance from Christmas 2008. Plus the Pet Shop Boys, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, The Pretenders, Curtis Mayfield, Kurtis Blow, Abba, Justin Bieber and Mariah Carey, and a fitting tribute to the late Amy Winehouse.
