Hollywood is full of the British and not just actors who've gone to try their luck for a few months. Many of the powerful studio executives, producers, directors and writers were born and trained here. Leaving Britain for money and opportunity, they went to 'Slough with palm trees' and found a warm welcome - and a completely different way of work.
With RONALD NEAME , GARETH WIGAN, ANTHONY RUFUS ISAACS , MICHAEL TUCKNER , IVAN MOFFAT , CLIVE EXTON , CAROLINE FEIFFER , ADRIAN LYNE and HENRY JAGLOM Producer MARGARET WINDHAM (Repeated: Wednesday 8.45 pm)

Margaret Horsfield investigates the stresses, strains and joys of this triangular relationship between mother, nanny and child.

The Legion of the Lost
An historical comedy by PAUL BRYERS with During the Napoleonic Wars, a French invasion of Wales was set up as a diversionary tactic. It was led by an American revolutionary colonel with more of a taste for wine and women than for military strategy, and his invasion of Fishguard is one of the least celebrated but most amusing episodes in history.
