A Forty Minutes programme Cromer prides itself on mounting one of the few remaining old-style pier entertainments. The theatre, right on the end of the pier, is small; money is tight; the audience declines year by year, but ex-Folies Bergeres dancer Bob Marlowe struggles against all odds to put a show together.
He can only afford three dancers, and they have to fit last season's costumes. The singers have to dance, comics sing, and top-of-the-bill brothers Gordon and Bunny Jay have to do everything to create the concert party feeling which will make a hit with the holidaymakers of north Norfolk.

Major 'Barney' Benson is none too happy about his assignment as training officer at
Sheridan Military Academy. He's a tough army man and a hard taskmaster, but his new cadets are kids, and the school is run by an order of nuns. Major Benson's no-fun methods make him thoroughly unpopular in this light-hearted family comedy.

There are some winners among the hymns which
Thora includes in her final programme. 'The day thou gavest, Lord, is ended' was number one in the Songs of Praise Top Ten you voted for earlier this year. 'Sing to God with gladness' won the Songs of Praise new hymn competition. Thora receives a visit from Cyril Taylor , who was one of the judges of that competition, and is himself the composer of another of tonight's popular hymn tunes, Abbot's Leigh. But, of course, Thora couldn't end the series without including the hymn for which she receives the most letters every year: 'The old rugged cross.'
Alleluia, sing to Jesus (Hyfrydol); When I survey the wondrous cross
(Morte Criste); The old rugged cross; St Patrick's breastplate; Sing to God with gladness; Glorious things of thee are spoken (Abbot's Leigh); Be still, my soul (Finlandia); The day thou gavest. Lord, is ended (St Clement)
