TV: C is for...


NUTS-AND-BOLTS ROUND-UP of the week’s big screen business, governed largely by whatever clips Granada had been able to wangle out of the distributors. Which was usually 30 seconds from a live action Disney natural history yarn or something starring Richard Burton that had been released four years ago. BAMBER GASCOIGNE was the first to fill in the gaps with wry commentaries on celluloid happenstance, before bailing out after three months for, in turn, DEREK GRANGER, MICHAEL “MIKE” SCOTT, MIKE “MICHAEL” PARKINSON, MARK “PRODUCED BY” SHIVAS, BRIAN TRUEMAN and, best of all, CLIVE JAMES who only did it because he got to travel up to Manchester on train and eat a British Rail breakfast.
