... and finally on TV Diary a word about some
of the programmes on your screens tonight.
At eight p.m. you can see An insect's life, an
hour long film full of wonderful close-up
photography. It seems the main problem with being an
insect is that everyone else wants to eat you -
including other insects! This programme is great fun,
but if you're the sort of person who runs out of the
room the moment you see an insect, it's definitely
not for you.
After the news at nine?thirty on BBC1 there's
Miller and Edwards. The two comedians have
saved a lot of their best jokes for this special
programme which is the last of the present series.
Tonight's show lasts an hour instead of the usual
half hour.Miller and Edwards are joined by
famous actor, Giles Welby, who plays an angry
motorist in one scene.
Now, fans of ITV's Policewatch drama series
will have to wait a little longer to find out what
happens to Andy Mckay, the Scottish detective who
always seems to have a cold. The programme will not
be shown tonight because the European Cup football
match is on instead. But Policewatch will be
back next Thursday as usual.
Beginning tonight is Stardate 3000, an
American science fiction series. It's been on
television in the USA for the last two months and
comments on the show have been mixed. It certainly
has some fine actors, but there is a limit to how
much a director can do with stories as weak as these.
I'm sure I've seen most of the scenery before in
other shows from the same studio. Perhaps some of the
money they saved on the scenery should be spent on
getting some better writers!
Also starting a new series tonight is Doctors In
Town, the medical drama series filmed in the
heart of London. The big question is: will this show
still be popular now that the two main actors have
left to do other work? John Tweed, who played Doctor
Walker, is now directing films, while Annie Thomas,
who played Nurse Jane Evans, has returned home to the
Australian stage. But I am sure the new actors
are excellent, making this an enjoyable start to the
Don't forget that, from tomorrow, TV Diary is
going to be at siX-thirty p.m. instead of
eight-thirty for three weeks because of the tennis
When the competitions finish at the start of July,
