JOHN PITMAN talks to Ruby Miller (part 1)
The Gaiety Theatre is no more, but Ruby Miller, at 82, is alive and well and living in Bognor Regis. She had more than 500 proposals - all of them decent. There was only one rule for the Gaiety Girls. You may accept flowers, chocolates, fruit; you may accept gloves, furs, jewels, houses, yachts ... But never money.'

This week: Hyde Park
Just. over half a square mile in the centre of overcrowded London. One of the most unusual parks in the world. A place for eccentrics. A place for speakers and lovers, winter swimmers and yoga fanatics, brass bandsmen and amateur horsemen, children and dogs, policemen and pop-protesters - and even ex-actresses exercising their pet ducks. A park which needs its own police station and has its own pets' cemetery. A royal park; where monarchs hunted wild boar and gentlemen duelled.
A report by one film crew, with one reporter, JOHN l'ITMAN, and one director, JENNY BARRACLOUGH , of one day in Hyde Park. It wasn'a day of demonstration or protest or pop concerts - nothing special about it. Except that, perhaps, any day in Hyde Park is special - if you're there.

Dick Lester 's inventive direction and the principal players' zest and obvious enjoyment all contribute to give this award-winning film unmistakable individuality.

Man in photo booth:
How dangerous is the cult of witchcraft?
Is there really a supernatural power - a power in conflict with the Church? Or is it self-delusion, and a kind of madness - due to man's confused understanding of himself?
Michael Bakewell examines the surprising evidence of what goes on today - from coven meetings in basement flats to the desecration of churchyards and even suspected murder.
