Recorded at the Robin Hood Theatre, Averham
For as far back as they can remember, the famous Cambridge Footlights Revue Club has paid an annual visit to the tiny Robin Hood Theatre near the village of Averham, not far from Newark. The theatre sells out every night for a week as far-flung Notts people motor in to watch the Footlights perform the material from which sketches and songs are selected soon after to be presented at their own show on the Edinburgh Fringe. For the Footlights it is a working holiday. Their spirits are light and anything that goes wrong tends to be incorporated in the show. Since the cast, who write all their own sketches, music, and lyrics, live in a loft above the theatre, new ideas can be tried out within minutes.

Based on the novel by Franz Kafka.
Starring Anthony Perkins, Jeanne Moreau, Orson Welles, Romy Schneider
Orson Welles likes to find off-beat settings for his productions and for The Trial the huge disused Gare d'Orsay in Paris provides the background to his version of Franz Kafka's nightmare story of Joseph K (Anthony Perkins), accused and placed on trial for an unnamed crime. He is never told his crime nor does he ever face his accuser or judge, though he does meet his advocate (played by Welles himself), a man who conducts his practice from an enormous baroque bed which he frequently shares with his nurse.

A last look around the daily scene with Michael Dean, Joan Bakewell, Tony Bilbow, Brian King and Sheridan Morley.
