A season of films starring one of Britain's most popular film comedians, George Formby Today with Kay Walsh
In this lively vehicle George plays a provincial photographer's assistant, who invents a camera so tiny that he can operate it secretly from under his bow tie! Inevitably it leads to complications, beginning when George loses his job - and ends up as an ice-hockey referee.
The climactic ice-rink sequences provide Formby with an ideal opportunity for slapstsick and good-natured fun.

This film looks back to the sailing days of the 30s.
Against a background of economic depression and surprising affluence, the 'Big Class' flourished. They were the mighty yachts that dominated the waters of the Solent. It's a story of wealthy owners, their professional crews and the yacht builders. It's also the story of the prewar challenge for the America's Cup.

Talk is Cheap
What is a chat show - a forum for stimulating conversation and the exchange of ideas or just an economical way of filling the airwaves?
Gus Macdonald becomes host for an evening and invites his guests Russell Harty , David Frost and Kenneth Williams to discourse on the art of the chat show. Simon Dee talks about the legendary moment when he was given his own chat show and Jackie Collins sets off on the long promotional haul, knocking off one chat show after another. And Quentin Crisp and Malcolm Muggeridge consider why we should want to watch strangers talking on television.
