2: A Dining-Room in Rainham, Essex
Designer, KENNETH PARTRIDGE Drawings, DON KIDMAN Do-It-Yourself, ROY DAY
Presenter, PETER GLYNN SMITH Producer, SHEILA INNES
Accompanying pamphlet: see page 10 ' A place to live in that is well-planned, attractive, easy to keep clean, economic to run; a place that meets all our requirements.' A tall order, but something that most of us would like and that a good designer can achieve.
Quite ordinary accommodation was chosen on purpose. Some of the rooms for treatment were as little as nine feet square. Big enough for everyday living but not very large when one has to accommodate a film unit of ten people, two cameras, lighting equipment, the family, and the designer, and still try to preserve the spontaneity of the original meeting.
In tonight's programme Roy Day builds a concealed hatch which Kenneth Partridge designed as part of a dining-room scheme for Brian and Beverly Willson , who live in Rainham, Essex.

In Berlin in September 1935 Ruth Ackermann , the Jewish wife of an eminent Aryan doctor, secretly decides to leave Germany for the sake of her husband's future. She rehearses her parting speech to him; but when they meet, what can they say to each other?
Elisabeth Bergner has been living in England for the past fifteen years, but most of her recent performances have been in Germany. In 1963 she was the first actress to receive the Schiller Prize—an award for an outstanding contribution to the arts. Towards the end of last year she appeared in The Mad Woman of Chaillot at Oxford and Guildford, and her per. formance was greatly acclaimed.

A determined and dedicated Russian girl, Ninotchka, is sent to
Paris on a very delicate cultural mission. Peter Ilyitch Boroff, Russia's most famous composer, has stayed longer in Paris than the authorities like, and has become involved with Steve Canfield, a shrewd American film producer. Ninotchka soon finds out that he is not only shrewd but also very charming ...
Silk Stockings is a musical remake of Ninotchka, the film which first saw Greta Garbo laugh.
