starring Jack Benny, Ann Sheridan
In the first of this afternoon's double-bill of comedy films based on successful Broadway plays, Connie Fuller persuades her reluctant husband to leave New York for an idyllic country house once said to have been the base of America's first president. Unfortunately the plumbing is the same vintage as the house, the roof leaks, there's no water and no access road. Otherwise everything's fine and George Washington did sleep there. Or did he ...?

England v France, Scotland v Ireland
Introduced by Nigel Starmer-Smith
England, led by BILL BEAUMONT, must provide enough good ball for their free-running backs to secure victory and a share of the Championship. France need victory to win the Grand Slam and their formidable pack could be the match decider.
Scotland must keep to their running style of rugby to avoid a share of the 'Wooden Spoon'. Ireland, surprisingly without a win, are searching for a winning combination.

A Walk with Amos Oz
' Marching the streets of Jerusalem in 67, carrying a sub-machine-gun, I was in an absurd way acting out the role reserved* for the Arabs in my childhood nightmares. For the life of me, I don't want the Palestinian Arabs to become the Jews of the Jews.' The leading writer of his generation, Amos Oz is one of the most controversial figures in Israel today. Born in the fanatical atmosphere of Jerusalem in the last years of the British Mandate, he grew up with the Israeli state through the War of Independence and Suez. Arena filmed AMOS oz in Jerusalem; he takes a walk through 30 years of Israel's history and talks about the fears and aspirations of a new generation of Israelis,

The classic feature film starring Louise Brooks , Fritz Kortncr Franz Lederer , Carl Gotz
G. W. Pabst 's screen version of Wedekind's plays caused a furore when it was released in 1928 and was heavily censored in many parts of the world. Louise Brooks became a star overnight: her cool, innocent expression and beckoning smile gave her an extraordinary eroticism as Lulu, the prostitute who inspired evil unawares. The music for this presentation, selected by Carey Blighton , includes part of Alban Berg 's orchestral suite from his opera Lulu, recently performed at Covent Garden.
