Tom Thacker's dad always says that if you can't bring your friends home there must be something wrong with them. Tom knows there's nothing unacceptable about his new girlfriend, Cath, but he's not so confident about the state of play at home. As he warns her, they're not a 'formal' kind of family.

A divertissement in four parts in which Sir John Gielgud, in conversation with John Miller, takes an international look over half a century working on stage and screen.
'In Caligula I play somebody who doesn't approve of the whole regime, quite rightly. There was this huge set, like Waterloo Station, with a glass-fronted bath and I was put in this bath with warm water, in a chair. I was supposed to bleed to death... The water got colder and colder, so every two hours I'd be taken out and dried down by two or three terrifying old ladies and given a clean shift and put back in the water, which had been rewarmed. And there I spent two whole days!'
