First transmitted in 1984. Terry Wogan's Christmas Day guests include comedian Freddie Starr, Kiri Te Kanawa talking about her singing career and Maori background, and Elton John making his first appearance on the show. Victoria Principal appears in a feisty and hugely entertaining satellite interview, with Wogan gently mocking her television series Dallas, and Principal teasing Wogan at every opportunity, frequently reducing herself to tears of laughter in the process.
