A lost episode of Morecambe And Wise is set to air on Christmas Day after being discovered in an attic by Eric Morecambe's son. Dating from 1970, the 45-minute show was the comedy duo’s first for BBC One and dates from October that year after they moved from BBC Two. Gary Morecambe discovered seven canisters in the attic of his mother's house in Harpenden, Hertfordshire, while searching for old scripts last year.
