Trivia

The last three of Benny Hill's shows for the BBC, first aired on 20 November 1968, 11 December 1968 and 26 December 1968, were erased by the Corporation after Benny Hill moved to Thames Television in 1969. The only surviving portions of this final series consist of 20 minutes of filmed inserts for the very last show. Most of his 1960s shows, up to the 20 April 1968 edition, remain in the BBC archives.
