Still in Love with Lucy

Dear Fellow Lucy Fans,
Happy Monday -- and for those of you living in the United States, Happy Thanksgiving! It's hard to believe that the year is this far along. November 19th, of course, was always a very special day for Lucy and her second husband, Gary Morton -- it was their wedding anniversary! As a metter of fact, today would have been their 40th Anniversary -- they were married on this day in 1961.
Many thanks to everyone who sent us an e-message after last Sunday's wonderful 'I Love Lucy' 50th Anniversary Special.' We enjoyed hearing your comments -- and posted many of them in our We've Got Mail section.
No sooner had the excitement about that CBS special begun to wear off than we heard from David Hillman, our "correspondent" in the United Kingdom, who wrote to tell us the BBC is also showing a Lucy special this week, something called, "Lucille Ball, Queen of Comedy." He scanned and sent along some of the newspaper ads (reproduced below), but I am not sure if this is a BBC original production, or something that we have already seen here in the US. He promised to give us a full report after it airs.
Here are his newspaper clippings:
That's all the news for now...
Again, have a great holiday!
