All Fall Down
A Born Foreigner with Derek Hart
Born near Manchester, Christopher Isherwood has mostly lived abroad. In the early 1930s he went to Berlin as an English teacher, like ' a camera with its shutter open.' His view of the rise of the Nazis resulted in two books-Mr Norris Changes Trains and Goodbye to Berlin, which were later adapted for the theatre as I am a Camera and Cabaret. Isherwood now lives in California as an American citizen. He writes novels, including A Single Man and A Meeting by the River, film scripts like Sailor from Gibraltar, teaches at the University, is a devotee of Hinduism and a pacifist. Yet of his own choice, he remains an outsider - a foreigner.
' My life is not consciously intentional. It was decided for me by circumstances.'
' There's always a tremendous sense that my life is a masquerade.'
Produced by FRED BURNLEY
at Berns Restaurant, Stockholm with The Young Generation
Featuring Lulu, one of Britain's most professional girl singers in a spectacular cabaret at one of Sweden's smartest night-spots...
She is joined by the Young Generation, the live-wire team of boys and girls who made such a big hit in Rolf Harris 's latest series.
As you might expect the Young Generation are very much a team off-stage. A fact demonstrated by the three marriages within the troupe. It also has its drawbacks. A few days before they were due to leave for Sweden one of the boys was in contact with someone who had chicken-pox. The entire crew waited breathlessly for a rash of red spots to break out among the dancers. Luckily, they didn't.
Their high professional standards were really put to the test when they flew to Sweden to record a series of four programmes. They had just two weeks to learn 29 different dance routines - steps and words.
They really do sing the words of the songs and are producing an LP to prove it

For Bassey fans this is the definitive show. Three-quarters-of-an-hour dedicated exclusively to the talents of Britain's most exciting girl singer.
In the vast, century-old Berns Restaurant in Stockholm, Shirley 'turned on' the audience of 2,000 reckoned to be among the most discriminating in Europe.
With songs like "I (who have nothing)," "Goldfinger," "Big Spender," and "Funny Girl," this is Shirley Bassey reaching a new high level of talent.
Bassey is one of the great cabaret performers with an ability to project herself across the stage and into the souls of her audience.
