Hudson and Halls - Episode Seven (1982)

Television (Excerpts) – 1982

They came, they battered, they bickered. Peter Hudson and David Halls were as famous for their on-screen spats as they were for their recipes. The couple ("Are we gay? Well, we're certainly merry") turned cooking into comedy. Coming soon after winning 1981 Feltex Entertainer of the Year, these excerpts show viewers how to make crepes with cream chicken and vegetable filling. There's microwaves, roasted nuts and dollops of innuendo — plus two guests from England: jazz clarinetist Acker Bilk, and poet and TV personality Pam Ayres, who performs some ribald rhymes.

If you're confused so are we, don't worry!
