Six comics explore the roots of their humour.
2: Irene Handl 's London
Irene Handl is one of Britain's funniest actresses, appearing in countless plays and films in a succession of working-class cockney parts. Yet her own
London background is vastly different. Bom of foreign parents over 80 years ago, she grew up in a household staffed with servants, and in this film she talks about the childhood experiences that later became the basis of so many comic roles in films such as A
French Mistress, Morgan and I'm All Right Jack. Film editor RAY HOUGH

with Robert Lacey. Six films on the noble families of Europe
Germany: Prince Johannes von Thurn und Taxis
Prince Johannes, business tycoon, reformed playboy and zealous protector of the family line, is also the largest landowner in West Germany. He gave up a rakish private life three years ago to marry the vivacious Princess Gloria, 34 years his junior.
As the head of a powerful business empire, he has made enemies: that's why he rides between his 11 palaces at 100 miles an hour in a bullet-proof car.
Robert Lacey asks how Prince Johannes will keep up the traditions of a family which made its fortune as postmen to the Holy Roman Empire.
The new Princess von Thum und Taxis speaks frankly about life.

Tuscany Revisited
Byron, Shelley, D. H. Lawrence and Virginia Woolf were all at some point lured to Tuscany in northern Italy. Writers, artists and performers from all over the world still make the pilgrimage for peace and inspiration. This evening Omnibus discovers contemporary artists at work in the area. Musica Nel Chiostro is an opera festival in Batignano. Made up entirely of British singers, the festival celebrated its tenth anniversary in a tumbledown 17th-century convent with a new opera by Stephen Oliver based on the story of Beauty and the Beast. Meanwhile, elsewhere in Tuscany, the Australian painter Jeffrey Smart reflects on his own obsession with the environment. In contrast to the opera singers his own view is sharply realistic - but equally as beautiful. Sound BRUCE GALLAWAY Film cameramen

Once Upon a Time
What is only 100 years old?
What were the French finally forced to accept?
And why do King Charles n, Sir Isaac Newton , Captain
Cook, Admiral Sir Clowdisley Shovel , the Great Western Railway and an American called Charles Dowd share a vital part in an institution of which we in Britain can be justly proud?
Patrick Moore takes an affectionate look at the stories behind the centenary of Greenwich Mean Time; asks why it incurred the wrath of the law and discovers why astronauts and space men - like mere earthlings - would be lost without Greenwich Mean Time.

The Miracle Worker of Ladeira Maria da Conceicao is a 48-year-old peasant woman whose community in Ladeira, northern Portugal, has become the centre of an ecstatic cult. Her followers claim she is a saint, and she herself says she has visited heaven 15 times. Contrary to scientific evidence, she declares, the moon and various planets she passes on her way are inhabited. The Roman Catholic Church has excommunicated her. This film shows two events which her followers acclaimed as miracles, witnesses the scenes of hysteria which accompanied them, and examines the reasons for her celebrity - and notoriety.
