More than 100,000 people lined the banks of the Bristol Avon last summer to watch the return of the SS Great Britain, Brunel's famous iron ship, to the dock from which it was launched on 19 July 1843.
This film follows the successes and failures of the SS Great Britain from its birth in Bristol, through the organisation of a seemingly impossible rescue from the Falklands.

BBC1's film for Easter Sunday stars Cary Grant, Leslie Caron
with Trevor Howard
'Mother Goose' is the unlikely code name for Cary Grant, playing a South Seas beachcomber who is pressed into service as a military observer during World War II. But when Leslie Caron as a French schoolteacher turns up with a troop of schoolgirls in the midst of Japanese bombing, Cary becomes 'Father Goose' as well, and the stage is set for comedy all the way.
The screenplay won writers Peter Stone and Frank Tarloff an Academy Award.

Andre Previn conducts the London Symphony Orchestra leader John Georgiadis and shows clips from an enormous range of motion pictures, tracing the progress of music in the cinema from the silent film beginnings with a shirt-sleeved piano player at the jangle-box, to the sophistication of today's scores using synthesisers and 8-track stereo.

A lady in Lanes said
'A spire is what every good church must require'
But her sis, with a glower
Said 'A church needs a tower,'
So they built one with both and it's dire.
