IIRC Christmas 1991 was the Armed Forces special as it made mention of Iraq and the Gulf War.

One of the later series (1993) had a Christmas special that was played for charity but had a couple of lads who as it turned out were friends of one of the two boys who were killed in the 1993 Warrington Bombing. There were also two blind girls on it, one of whom had appeared on the Barrymore show to sing and she got to sing again on his other vehicle. Which was nice for her.
