: Film Matinee: Pygmalion

A season of films featuring celebrated performances by some of Britain's most distinguished actors. Today starring
Leslie Howard , Wendy Hiller
Shaw himself adapted his play Pygmalion for the screen, adding 14 new scenes and a slightly changed ending. With perfect performances from Leslie Howard and Wendy Hiller as Higgins and Eliza and from Wilfrid Lawson as Doolittle, many critics felt the film surpassed the play. And it was the film that formed the basis for the musical My Fair Lady.
Screenplay by BERNARD SHAW Based on his play Pygmalion

: Play of the Month: Danton's Death

by GEORG BUCHNER
Freely adapted for television by STUART GRIFFITHS and ALAN CLARKE with Norman Rodway as Danton Ian Richardson as Robespierre Danton 's Death is arguably the most dramatic and penetrating study of revolution ever written. Georg Biichner who died aged only 23 in 1837, and who is a major influence behind much of the drama of the 20th century, paints a rich canvas of the French Revolution. It covers the debates at the National Assembly, the reeking streets of Paris, the salons and the brothels, the warring political factions, the secret arrests, and the grim scenes of execution. Biichner concentrates on that moment in 1794 when the Reign of Terror, already well established, spills over into a total blood-bath. The play, both highly imaginative and closely documentary, shows how the great hero of the early phase of the Revolution, Danton, sickened by the excesses of the guillotine, which he helped to create, wants to call a halt. But Robespierre and Saint-Just, the leaders of the extremists, with a ferocious puritanical zeal, spur on ' the wild horses of the Revolution.'

: Cross Question

Is the Occult Fact or Faith? with Colin Wilson and Dr Christopher Evans
In this series specially invited interviewers cross-question guests of their own choice on crucial spiritual issues.
COLIN WILSON , writer, and DR CHRISTOPHER EVANS , research psychologist, are old friends. But their beliefs are very different. WILSON is the author of The Occult. He believes that we possess, and are surrounded by, hidden powers which established science refuses to acknowledge, and that we now need a new kind of science which will help us to get in touch with this world of the occult, DR EVANS has written a book called Cults of Unreason. He attacks such beliefs as Wilson's as muddled and misguided and says the scientific method still offers the best path to an understanding of ourselves and the universe.
Tonight he questions Colin Wilson about his views, and asks: are they really based on fact, or are they just a matter of faith?

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
