Tea at Wilton
In this, the second of 15 Programmes, Arthur Negus enjoys the company of Michael Smith , the television cook. They discuss tea, from the time of its introduction to England from China in the 17th century, through to the Victorian high tea with fancy cakes and cucumber sandwiches. As tea became increasingly fashionable so English craftsmen turned to making more and more tea ware, at first copying
Chinese styles, but going on to develop their own strong tradition.

New Year, New Hopes
The lives of Britain's 17,000
Vietnamese-bom refugees no longer attract intense media interest. The familiar image of war-weary and storm-tossed 'Boat People' has faded, but the problems facing these same people today are even more complex than when they first arrived five years ago.
'I don't know what to do. On the one hand I think we have to preserve our culture, on the other hand we must try to catch up with the kind of culture around us in order to normalise our lives.'
(PHONG QUOC LUONG,
Senior House Parent, Save the Children Fund Home)
'The English way of life has destroyed all family feelings - the warmth is lost. I regret the loss of love. Life is plentiful but there is something missing.'
(MRS HOA, grandmother)
'I can't say that I'm English or Vietnamese. I don't think it matters. Each way of life has many good things and many bad things. We must make the choice individually.'
(LE HANH PHOUC MINH, medical student)

Regional Variations (2)

Duration: 55 minutes

on BBC Two Northern Ireland (Analogue)

Dundridge awakens after a night at the golf club to find himself in a car, in a lonely country road, clad only in his underwear.

As usual some knotty problems for Desmond Olivier Dingle (Patrick Barlow) as the lease to the late-night club comes to an end. No problems, however, for Robyn Archer or Bertice Reading, who inspire with their songs and satire, and join forces for a spectacular au revoir.
On stage: radical gay comic Simon Fanshawe and the return of impressionist Rory Bremner and Robyn Archer's guests, A Little Westbrook Music, with Kate Westbrook, Mike Westbrook and Chris Biscoe, plus Phil Todd. The alley lies silent, eagerly awaiting the new leaseholder.
