2: A Grandstand View
Sport was what many people with television sets most wanted to see, but in the 40s and 50s the broadcasters found three main obstacles to providing it. This programme tells how these problems were solved and how, with the coming of commercial TV in the mid-50s, the BBC's outside broadcast coverage of sport played an important part in the new competition for viewers.

Richard Burton , the 12th child of a collier, Die Jenkins , was born in the South Wales mining village of Pontrhydyfen in 1925. Nobody could have known then. that before his 30th birthday, he would be hailed as the best Shakespearean actor of his generation, star in several Hollywood films, including My Cousin Rachel and The Robe, the first film in Cinemascope, and within a year or so would be a tax exile and a millionaire and all with no formal dramatic training or repertory experience.
Since then, his flamboyant life style, especially during his marriage to Elizabeth Taylor , has seldom been far from the front pages of the world's press. Now. at the age of 57, he looks back on this remarkable life, and talks about his career on the stage and screen, and his struggle against alcoholism.
Also appearing are Robert Hardy , Anthony Quayle , and Philip Bur ton, the Pygmalion-like Port Talbot schoolmaster whoirecog-y nised and nurtured the talent of the young Jenkins. and/ gave him his name.
