Christmas and Nostalgia on YouTube

Several clips of one ad (sung by Ben Robinson). It's apparently a parody of a classic UK Christmas show. We aren't at all familiar with it here, though I recognise the tune from BriTV references to it, and many of the scenes they fly past. I'm informed one I scene don't know is the Falkirk Wheel (photos & some info at falkirk/ falkirkwheel/), a modern rotating boat wheel. watch?v=bVjWiT-zmvs; OR watch?v=tLZBfU5H1yM — This one has the lyrics to the advertisement; OR watch?v=GM5eMnj2Pkw; OR watch?v=AbNoPiROsS8
