The twelve puzzles of Xmas

Position from a variation which did not take place.

What was the variation and in what game might it have occurred?

Korchnoi-Karpov Game 5 1978 which (more famously?) ended with White trying to win with B + wrong colour rook pawn. Instead of 55.Be4+, 55.Bf7+ Kc6 56.Qe4+ Kb5 (56...Kb7 lasts a bit longer) 57.Qc4+ Ka4 58.Qa6#
