Harold Williamson Revisits Lynne Cowley - A Very Private Detective
Lynne Cowley was adopted as a baby, and for 27 years had no idea who she was - there was no way of knowing. Then the law changed. Secrecy surrounding adoption was lifted and she was able to dig into the past. Despite warnings about the risks of going back in time, she burrowed away in registers of births and marriages, telephone books, electoral rolls and parish records to track down her natural mother.

"There's something wrong in this country if do-gooders can come along and take your kid away."
begins a season of films starring the celebrated comic actor. Today with Ian Carmichael
Terry-Thomas Richard Attenborough
Corrupt businessmen, incompetent managers and obstinate shop stewards are all mercilessly and equally lampooned in this famous
Boulting Brothers' satire. Ian Carmichael is the hopelessly incompetent innocent who breaks the rules of the game and Peter Sellers excels as a pillar of short-sighted integrity.

from the London Borough of Newham 'Do you sing tenor or bass?' the producer asked at the choir rehearsal. 'I sing awful!' came the reply. East End humour is alive and well in the dockland borough of Newham. So is Christianity - with the churches coming out from behind closed doors into the community.
Among the Christians
Roger Royle meets in the area are LINDA ST LOUIS who works at the Mayflower
Centre, and a Tamil family who have just formed their own church. For tonight's programme Christians from all over the borough gather in Rathbone Market in Canning Town to sing their songs of praise in their own style. ANNA WING ('Lou Beale ' of EastEnders) meets some of the stallholders and joins in the singing.

Once a Catholic ...
All is not well with the Pope's American congregation. The trouble is sex. In New York, a priest who admits to being homosexual, though he is true to his vows of celibacy, has just been expelled from the Jesuits after 38 years' service. The reason: he ministers to gay Roman
Catholics and denounces the Vatican's teaching on homosexuality. In West
Virginia, two plain-clothed, plain-speaking nuns are facing dismissal from their order. The reason: they publicly take a pro-choice position on abortion.
On the eve of the Pope's visit to America, Helena Kennedy asks whether the Catholic Church is sufficiently catholic to cope with dissent. Film editor MIKE ALOOF
