When librarian Helen Banning goes to work in Munich, she is not prepared for the delights of Europe or an unexpected love affair with an internationally famous conductor, Tonio Fischer. Unfortunately, the musician is married and his wife Reni is mentally ill ... Director Douglas Sirk turns this conventional love story into a bleakly-moving portrait of a tortured marriage and engages our sympathy as much for the neurotic wife as for the lovers. The film was shot largely on location and the city of Munich forms an important aspect of the film.

This week Jim Four with James, Keith, Kevin, Gerald and Malcolm, presents
The Way Back
Why should you put limits on us, because we're mentally handicapped? We do not accept such limits, and in our programme we hope to turn your ideas about us upside down. We think that we may have found The Way Back for those of us who do not measure up to those standards.
I Don't just watch this programme - we want you to contribute ideas, not on how you can help us, but on how we can help you. (We're even offering a prize ...!)'
