The last Olympiad for East Germany. A incredible 37 gold medals. Another story there.
The European 400m record Matthew Hudson-Smith lowered recently had previously been held by an East German athlete.

Yes, always a doubt over all those records.
Sadly he pulled up again at the last Diamond League meeting yesterday.

A Touch of Class the first episode of Fawlty Towers is broadcast on BBC2 at 9pm.
Michael Gwynn(1916-76) memorably played ‘Lord Melbury’. Gwynn was cast in many Hammer Horror films in the late 1960s. He played Hermes in Jason & the Arganorts((1963) & appeared in Dunkirk(1958) A couple of good films by anyone’s measure.
Also in this episode was Robin Ellis cast as DC Danny Brown. Ellis is better known as Captain Poldark in the series Poldark which was broadcast on BBC1 the following month.

That’s odd. I thought Gourmet Night was the first episode :unsure:

On checking my memory is defective :(

I thought Michael Gwynn was also very good as Lt Col Bromley-Pickering in The Virgin Soldiers

A good evenings viewing on BBC1. The series Mission Impossible, then police drama, Softly Softly Task Force.
A advert for a Calor Gas Super-Sur. Good for a bit of condensation & a little CO poisoning if they were working in small rooms.
