The children have started rehearsing for a charity concert for which their parents have given their approval, while making clear their opposition to their offspring taking up stage careers. All is thrown into confusion with the news that the town council are giving the lease of the theatre to Mrs Potter-Smith and the Ladies' Institute Dramatic Society.

Looking Good. Feeling Fit

BBC One Wales

The last of three films in which Donny MacLeod enjoys an inside view of an exciting, enigmatic country. Nagasaki
Here the missionaries first made landfall in Japan - and here the Christian faith still flourishes in an otherwise Buddhist country. To Nagasaki came the first Dutch traders - and continued to do so while the rest of Japan sealed itself off from the outside world. But the rich past was eclipsed by the cataclysmic events of 9 August 1945 when a plutonium bomb was exploded above the city. DONNY MACLEOD meets survivors. And he hears the message they have for the rest of the world.

The show that helps you make the best of what you've got.
Last of five programmes with Richard Stilgoe , Gillian Reynolds and Dr Mike Smith
We meet Harris Shoerats , still hale and hearty at 109, and learn how he does it. We do lunchtime physical jerks with people working in an underwear factory, seek advice at a centre for alternative medicine, and Gillian goes to an Italian health spa to take, among other things, a bath in radioactive mud.

Series 8

The Last Roll Call

Duration: 30 minutes

on BBC One West

The Royal Artillery Concert Party are back in England awaiting demob. Williams is determined that they will be disciplined soldiers to the bitter end.

The last of four films about the common experiences which highlight people's lives.

Death is the one experience of life in this country which few people face up to frankly. The last film meets undertaker Paul Mills for whom death is a way of life, and Dr Derek Doyle of St Columba's Hospice in Edinburgh, who ensures that his patients can die with dignity. But mainly it is about Scots actor Victor Carin, who faced up to his imminent death from cancer with inspiring courage, wit and cynicism.

Reporter Bernard Falk found it the most moving encounter of his long career. He talked to Victor at home with his teenage daughter, Kate, in a monastery trying to find some peace of mind, and at the Hospice where he finally died on 2 January this year.
