: Film Matinee: A Man for All Seasons

starring Paul Scofield
Wendy Hiller , Leo McKern Robert Shaw , Orson Welles and Susannah York
When Henry VIII declares himself head of the English church and rejects Papal authority, he meets with little opposition from his corrupt courtiers and churchmen. Henry seeks the approval and support of one man alone: Sir Thomas More , his Chancellor. More's refusal to endorse the king's action and his subsequent resignation and obstinate silence bring him into tragic conflict with the monarch.
Fred Zinnemann 's powerful film version of Robert Bolt's play won six Oscars and features one of the most distinguished casts ever assembled for a British production.

: Holiday

Introduced by Cliff Mlchelmore
The stately homes of Ireland are, in fact, ones that welcome visitors and aim to provide accommodation and meals of a consistently high standard. To sample the value of what these members of The Irish Country Houses and Restaurants Association offer, John Carter went to the Irish Republic and reports from Cork and Kerry.
Just what goes on in and around those package holiday hotels used by the younger generation of holiday-makers - those with the laid-back lifestyles? If you've ever wanted to know, all (or nearly all) will be revealed in this film report by Anne Gregg from the resort of Palma Nova in Majorca. Club 25, as the title implies, is aimed at holiday-makers up to and around that age who want a wide range of sporting and social activities built into their holiday.
For the third of her reports on Great British Weekends, Sarah Kennedy travels to Tenterden in Kent, where, among other things, she discovers the delights of an old-fashioned steam railway.
In the studio, the latest news and information from the travel front.

: Omnibus

Presented by Richard Baker
Peter Pan is the Royal Shakespeare Company's big hit at the Barbican Theatre. RICHARD BAKER flew in to talk to directors Trevor Nunn and John Caird about the formidable problems caused by an ambitious production which emphasises the serious side of J M. Barrie 's classic. Barrie based it on the experiences he had as a child when his brother died at the age of 12; Peter Pan cannot grow up beyond the age of 12. Andrew Birkin , author of The Lost Boys, observes that the play was rewritten 36 times and the RSC have gone back to the original version.
Bernard MacLaverty is a novelist who was born in Belfast and now lives on the island of Islay. Like Barrie's, much of his writing derives from his childhood, when at the age of 12 MacLaverty's father died. His short stories ' My Dear Palestrina ' and ' Phone Fun ' were adapted for television. His new book, Cal, deals movingly with the sectarian violence in Belfast.
