P. J. Kavanagh in Olney

The show you've been praying for, writing in for-well, Kenny has. It's the best of Kenny Everett , 1983. Remember 1983? The year in which Queen Victoria celebrated her Jubilee and Orville and Wilbur Wright achieved the first controlled flight of a heavier-than-air machine. (Some mistake here surely? EDITOR).

Another chance to see this four-part adaptation of Nevil Shute's classic novel - a tender love story which unfolds against the backgrounds of Japanese-occupied Malaya, the cold winters of blitzed England and the faded, flyblown outback of Australia. Starring
Jean Paget, an attractive carefree girl, is taken prisoner by the Japanese shortly before the fall of Singapore. While the men are taken off to a prison camp Jean, together with other English women and children, is forced to walk across the length and breadth of Malaya with very little food and no medical supplies. Into this living hell comes a benefactor in the shape of a good-natured, handsome Australian - Joe Harman.
'A Town Like Alice' is not only a good yarn: it is a memorable love story ...compelling TV (DAILY EXPRESS)
This romance has polish and class. The photography is excellent, the stars are handsome, the emotion tugs effectively without cheating or repelling, and Jean's integrity is hypnotic. (DAILY TELEGRAPH)
