Silly-Ness and the Bubble Machine (R)
Today the diner is parked slap-bang in the middle of a film lot, where Jake Abraham and Carolyn Marshall discover how spectacular stunts are staged, see movie monsters come to life and brush shoulder pads with some of their film-star favourites. Terence Trent D'Arby and the up-and-coming band Broken English provide the musical 'atmos', and Doctor of Doctor and the Medics drops in for a chat with Paul Goldsmith, Radio Sport Aid's DJ on TV.
SALLY MICHAEL ('Jo') and DOMINIC MACDONALD ('Brian Brian') will be watching the show from Uncle Rob's and channel-hop to find 'Our Man' (DAVID ENGLISH) indoors today and 'Pauline the Handicraft Queen' (ALEX LONSDALE) being arty.
