[Starring] Bing Crosby, Rise Stevens with Barry Fitzgerald

No film could be more appropriate for Easter Sunday than this appealing story of a young priest's life in a poor New York parish, which carried off nearly all the Academy Awards for 1944.

BBC1's film for Easter Sunday stars Cary Grant, Leslie Caron
with Trevor Howard
'Mother Goose' is the unlikely code name for Cary Grant, playing a South Seas beachcomber who is pressed into service as a military observer during World War II. But when Leslie Caron as a French schoolteacher turns up with a troop of schoolgirls in the midst of Japanese bombing, Cary becomes 'Father Goose' as well, and the stage is set for comedy all the way.
The screenplay won writers Peter Stone and Frank Tarloff an Academy Award.

or Mozart had a Car Crash at 171 Seconds

Andre Previn conducts the London Symphony Orchestra leader John Georgiadis and shows clips from an enormous range of motion pictures, tracing the progress of music in the cinema from the silent film beginnings with a shirt-sleeved piano player at the jangle-box, to the sophistication of today's scores using synthesisers and 8-track stereo.

A lady in Lanes said
'A spire is what every good church must require'
But her sis, with a glower
Said 'A church needs a tower,'
So they built one with both and it's dire.
