Kenneth Tynan (1927-80)
KENNETH PEACOCK TYNAN was stage-struck all his life and loved to shock. He was the illegitimate son of a six-times mayor of Warrington, and in the immediate post-war years at Oxford, he was a huge celebrity - a pleasure-seeking dandy, actor, director and the biggest attraction in Union debates. His ten years at The Observer established him as the wittiest and most influential drama critic in post-war Britain. He continued to exert his influence at the National
Theatre when Sir Laurence Olivier invited him to join as Literary Manager.
Perhaps best known for devising the nude erotic revue Oh! Calcutta!, he had always fought against censorship and was at the centre of the controversy over Hochhuth's Soldiers.
Anthony Howard presents this re-assessment. Among the contributors are Tynan's two wives Elaine Dundy and Kathleen Tynan Sir Ralph Richardson
John Osborne , Tom Stoppard

Delia creates three more recipes. This week's dishes will tempt the lone vegetarian, but are fun for anyone. The mighty brown lentil gets tossed around in a salad, finds itself in a moussaka, and sits nicely alongside tagliatelle in three cheeses.

Ned Steinberger has broken into a £200-million industry. He's invented a brand-new kind of electric bass guitar that has taken the pop scene by storm. But he is losing money fast. His tiny Brooklyn factory cannot make enough basses to cover overheads - and the competition from Japan is chasing hard.... Narrator Hugh Sykes Produced by THATCHER DREW for WGBH BOSTON Executive producer JONATHAN CRANE
A film about Joe Brown, shopkeeper, plumber, and one of the world's greatest rock climbers, who, in an era of millionaire sportsmen, is still having to mend roofs to raise the cash for his holidays, which could be in Scotland or the Himalayas, the Amazon jungle or Kenya. Anywhere with the raw material for indulging in what he modestly calls his 'childish pursuits'.
