with Bernard Cribbins.
Once upon a time children spent the winter afternoons playing with their own toy theatres. The young Winston Churchill was among those who cut out the familiar characters and acted their dramas on a miniature stage.
This week, Bernard Cribbins raises the curtain on some old stage favourites, beginning today with Harlequinade and the blood-curdling Black Beard the Pirate.

"And monuments, like men, submit to fate" (Alexander Pope)
A special film celebrating the 900th year of Westminster Abbey by Philip Donnellan and David Lytton to end, tonight, this year of commemoration.

A parade of kings, priests, and people, telling the story of how, within the walls of this Abbey, are laid the heroes of the English Nation - the soldiers, the politicians, the poets, the saints, and the sinners - and of the worship, Benedictine and Anglican, which has continued there through nine centuries.
