with John Pitman
Some people seek fame; others have it thrust upon them. This series of six films follows the fortunes of men and women who made front-page news and looks at how they cope with the pressures of being public property.

Keith Castle used to live a quiet family life in Battersea. Now he's famous as Britain's longest surviving heart transplant patient and he's always in the spotlight.
'Previous to being ill, my big worry was doing something that might end up on the front page of a certain Sunday newspaper,' he says. 'Then this happens, and you're thrown into a goldfish bowl.'
Recently Keith and his wife, Doreen, met the couple who had given their son's heart to doctors who operated on Keith. 'He's so full of life,' they say. 'It's nice that out of all our sadness, happiness did come.'
Keith had many offers to cash in on his luck. Newspapers offered him thousands of pounds for his story, but he said no. ' It would be a bit smutty - you can't put a price on something like this.'

by Tim Rose Price
with Barry Foster as the Major
As World War II draws to a close thousands of Russian soldiers overtaken by the Allied advance in Europe find themselves in England - and they like it. The major of one particular camp foresees problems should they have to go back; but as he says, 'They're only going home, after all!' - but home to what?
"This little gem of compression and understatement." (The Daily Telegraph)
"Blessed by a splendid central performance by Barry Foster and direction of the highest class by Jonathan Lewis." (New Standard)
(The Brylcreem Boys tomorrow at 9.40)
