This is only good for Shirley Bassey!!, 12 October 2008
Author: SkippyDevereaux from Parkersburg, West Virginia

Strange Christmas special with Bing Crosby and a slew of British stars of both stage and screen, some of whom I have never heard of--Dave King? Marion Ryan? The Wanderers? Who are these people?? It also has a surprise appearance by Bob Hope, which was nice to see. But, it was Shirley Bassey that made this special stand out. She gets to sing two songs--"Shooting High" and "As I Love You", which was her first number 1 hit. It is still a great song. Basically, the special is all about Bing traveling around England, looking for the history of his family tree. This special is available for sale on DVD and it came with two specials with Bing Crosby and this one even had the actual commercials when it was originally broadcast back on December 11, 1961 on ABC. The DVD cover said that this was Bing's first Christmas special, but other than Shirley Bassey, the surprise appearance of Bob Hope and Bing singing "White Christmas" at the end, it was passable.
