A Ripe Old Age
It's hard not to smile, but affectionately, when his name is mentioned, because Arthur Askey has been making Britain laugh for more than half a century.
Long before he became nationally famous in the first regular BBC radio series, Band Waggon, with Richard Murdoch , he was building a reputation in touring and summer seaside companies, and, of course, panto.
Show business has been his life and his consuming interest, and making people laugh gives him his greatest pleasure. Not age or illness or accident can keep him long off the boards. But with a modesty rare in showbiz, the man who was among the first to master the new techniques of radio, and television tells Robbie that he can't understand why he is still in demand when today's comedians are so much more talented than the old hands.

A series of six programmes which follow the fortunes of people who have decided to risk a dramatic change in their lives. 5: A Home for Janice?
A year ago, 16-year-old Janice [text removed] asked to be taken into care because she was so unhappy at home. Since then, she's been shunted around various children s homes, never really settling anywhere. Now she has decided she wants to be fostered.
Lynn and Allen [text removed] have three young boys and a spare room in their house. For two years they have talked about becoming foster parents. Now they have finally decided they would like to give a home to a difficult disturbed teenager-and Janice fits the bill. On the surface it ought to be simple - she wants a home and they want a foster child. But because one in three foster placements break down, everybody knows there are going to be problems.
This is the story of how social workers at Coventry try to bring Janice and the [text removed]s together, try against the odds to make it work.

Omnibus presents a film about the last days of a Paris night club, Concert Mayol. Since 1881, it was one of the top music-halls in Paris - with stars like Yvette Guilbert, Fernandel, and Felix Mayol himself.
In time, its glamorous soubrettes appeared with fewer and fewer clothes, until the Mayol became one of the last bastions of the classic Parisian nude show: striptease in the old French style. Last year, its proprietor decided that even that was out-of-date, and the Mayol closed its doors for the last time.
Omnibus was there for the final weeks, and this film is an intimate portrait of the women who performed there - on stage, behind the scenes, and in the daylight hours. We also record a unique event in industrial relations - a strippers' strike.
