Cliff Michelmore covers the motoring news of the week, with Michael Frostick and Barrie Gill.

Tonight the Wheelbase/Kleber Scholarship is awarded in London to the most promising young British rally driver of 1973. The prize includes a works-prepared Ford Escort RS 1600, £5,000 cash and £500 in spares, and is designed to help the winner compete in rallies at home and abroad throughout 1974.

The programme also asks if there is an answer to motorway fog? Better lighting, radar, or a total ban on motorway driving when visibility is bad?

[Starring] Charles Laughton
also starring Vivien Leigh, Rex Harrison

Charles Saggers, a Cockney busker, falls for a beautiful young waif, but loses her when she is taken up by socialites and turned into a West End star.

In a career lasting over 30 years, Charles Laughton created an astonishing gallery of famous film characterisations, from Henry VIII to Captain Bligh. In tonight's film, produced by his own company in 1938, he gives one of his most moving performances as the busker who loses the girl he loves to the bright lights inside the theatre and returns to find his own happiness with his old friends in the theatre queue.
