A scatter-brained actress,
Annabel Allison , is completely under the influence of her smart-talking agent, Lanny Morgan. Lanny's methods are certainly unusual - he persuades his star to live out her roles for maximum publicity. After a spell in prison, Annabel is cajoled into becoming a maid in a wealthy household, with hilarious results.

The first of three films about the Chinese countryside. Small Happiness
In this unusual film, made by Carma Hinton , an American who was brought up in China, the women of a small village talk unrestrainedly about love and marriage, husbands and mothers-in-law, babies and childbearing.... And the grandmothers talk touchingly of the bad old days: child marriages, footbinding, servitude....
Seldom has a film got as close to the ordinary women of China - and there are 400 million of them!
Narrator Libby Purves Produced and directed by CARMA HINTON and RICHARD GORDON Produced for the BBC by VIVIANA WOODRUFF (R)

Eight stories of the Special Operations Executive.
Narrated by Michael Bryant In the early hours of 26 November 1942, the mountains of central Greece echoed with a double explosion. At dawn, the once impressive railway viaduct across the Gorgopotamos river lay in ruins. SOE had struck their first strategic blow in the occupied Balkans. Greek resistance fighters - the 'andartes' - had joined the British-led sabotage squad in the assault.But from now on, SOE's British commanders would become more and more enmeshed in the web of Greek politics.
For the first time in over 40 years, SOE's men return to their former mountain hideouts to report on how they cut Rommel's vital supply line, how they deceived the Germans about the invasion of Sicily and how they were treated by Churchill's Foreign Office. This superb documentary series

An Out of Court special Presented by Ed Boyle
With division among the Law Lords, controversial injunctions against the press, and the British Government awaiting judgment in the Australian courts, the legal web around Peter Wright 's book Spycatcher has grown ever more tangled.
Some commentators argue that a precedent has now been set which threatens liberties. But what is the proper balance between the right to publish and the need to protect the national interest? Should the judges alone assess that balance? Would a Bill of Rights improve or impede the freedom of the individual? Studio director PIETER MORPURGO Producer ALAN BOOKBINDER
