What do you do with unwanted Christmas presents?

Five years ago, the BBC broadcast a marvellous piece by Brian Sibley entitled And Yet Another Partridge In A Pear Tree, in which the gifts in the well-known song "The Twelve Days of Christmas" were considered from the point of view of their helpless recipient (played by Penelope Keith). Ms Keith was at the time (and still is) very well-known as the star of a number of popular British sitcoms, and gave a splendid performance. Sadly, althiugh the programme has been rebroadcast several times, it has never been made commercially available.

So it was with great delight that I chanced upon the blog of Samuel Gordon Stewart, whereat the programme is available as an mp3 file for listening or download. Enjoy.
