Together Forever by WALLY K. DALY

Pearls once brought wealth to the Arabian Gulf. Today it comes from oil that gushes from beneath the sea. The gulf's bounty of wildlife is a part of its natural riches too. Migrating birds flock to its shores and its waters conceal a stunning array of creatures: sea snakes, batfish, corals, huge shoals of jacks and blooms of jellyfish that stretch to the horizon. But for how long can these priceless treasures survive the onslaught of modern development or, worse still, the war which now threatens its shores?

Bernard Levin in conversation with Alan Ayckboum
Playwright, director, lyricist and ex-actor, ALAN AYCKBOURN has been stage-struck since his youth. Now, in his 40s, he is one of the world's most successful writers of plays, squeezing up to three a year into the gaps between his full-time career as director of productions at the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough.
It would be difficult to find a week when one of Ayckbourn's works is not in performance somewhere; but though his popular acclaim is hard to equal, he writes almost reluctantly.

continues a short season of films new to television, tonight starring
Grant Tilly , Dorothy McKegg
Colin has problems. An increasingly disinterested wife. A not-very-exciting job. And an expanding waistline. When he takes up jogging to lose weight and starts up an affair with Judy, a fellow teacher, two of the problems are tackled and the job of principal opens up at the school, but solutions are not that simple and at a dinner party given for friends t) problems come into the open ...
This witty comedy conveys a devastating portrait of middle-aged angst through its sharply barbed dialogue and the brilliant central performance.
Screenplay by KEITH ABERDEIN - Produced by JOHN BARNETT. Directed by JOHN REID (First showing on British television) Films: page 14
