    The location is St Mary's Hospital, Plaistow.

    "Frankie Howard" in text and tags should read Frankie Howerd (3 changes needed in all).

    Currently undocumented, Des O'Connor is visible in a Santa suit at 00:58.

    Then at 01:03 Dickie Henderson kisses Barbara Windsor.

    Then at 01:40, Liz Fraser is seen putting on a beard.

    Further footage of the event can be seen in clip 3098.08.
