Subject: RE: BBC4 Christmas Session
"Good Old Days meets Down and Out in London and Paris? Absolutely! And why-ever not?"

Why not indeed. As I said on the other thread there is no music hall or variety in the traditional sense on the box. The programme had the slightly seedy, camp, self-deprecating music hall sensibility down very well. What it wasn't was folk club folk, which the programme clearly never set out to be.
