For well over a century, boys have followed the pleasure steamers of the Clyde, giving them the same devotion as other boys have given to the steam locomotive.
Though the era of steam may be ending, boys are still interested. One such is young Kyle Neil Mackay, and it is through his eyes - excited, full of experience and the joys of sailing - that the Clyde and its steamers are seen tonight.

Made by the BBC Film Unit, Scotland

From the novel by Elizabeth Bowen
Television play by Anne Allan and Julian
starring Pamela Brown, Vivienne Bennett, Trader Faulkner, Clare Austin with John Westbrook

(BBC recording)
(See below)

To the house in Paris, with its curtained, waxed, formal parlour, come two children, sent on different quests. English Henrietta, twelve years old, conventional but not unfeeling - and Leopold, ten, with his disconcerting manner and unknown background. Upstairs, ill, lies the mysterious Madame Fisher. How does the Leopold mystery link up with the past of this house?
To the elucidation of this mystery, and to its trappings, Elizabeth Bowen brings all her vitality and curiosity, her poetic feeling, her wit, and her delight in human beings and in the use of words.

'I can only do one song at a time. There is no better way to get friends with a man than to have a fight with him.'
