in search of ... Vanity
' Too old to change ' is not something that Fyfe Robertson would readily accept - as you can see in this the second in a series of light-hearted quests.
Producer TOM SAVAGE
Doomsday Never Comes ... declares John Crosby , optimist, in this series of highly personal films.
' Pessimism about the future is very fashionable - and very profitable. But if I could have any period of history to live in, I would choose to be living right now.' So says JOHN CROSBY , the Observer columnist, who belongs to that long list of celebrated Americans who have settled in Britain.
In this film Crosby tries to bring a spark of common sense to what he regards as the current hysterias about pollution, over population, world food shortages and other sacred subjects.

Colin Welland ... at the Seaside The scene is Blackpool - Lancashire's oasis - mecca for thousands of thirsty travellers raring to have a go. But the Blackpool of yore is changing. The new concessionaires are replacing the ornament of the past with the gimcrack of the present. Wrought-iron gives way to plastic, a trip up the Tower is now an Apollo Space Ride. But the spirit of Blackpool lives on, and Colin Welland joins three generations of Blackpool lovers who, despite all, still manage to 'Have their Lovely Time.'
