starring Judy Garland, Fred Astaire
One of Hollywood's classic musicals - the legend of Pygmalion set enchantingly to music by Irving Berlin. Fred Astaire plays a famous dancer - deserted by his partner - who claims that he can transform any chorus-girl into a star. Happily, the girl he chooses is the incomparable Judy Garland. Songs featured in the film include the moving 'Better luck next time', the light-hearted 'A feller with an umbrella' and, of course, the duet 'We're a couple of swells'.

In this series Arthur Negus is joined by Angela Rippon , and they go on the road with a team of Britain's leading experts. They meet the public informally and discuss treasured possessions brought along for their assessment.
