    8.55pm Instant Sunshine
    in Roads to Stardom with Peter Christie , David Barlow
    Miles Kington , Alan Maryon-Davis
    Three doctors and a journalist make up this lighthearted vocal and
    instrumental group. When chance first brought them together in
    the heady days of the late 60s they little dreamt that in a mere ten
    years they would still be doing the same sort of show. It's not so
    much that stardom has eluded them, as that they have eluded
    stardom. After more than 70 television appearances, five radio
    series, four records, a book, and offers from British and American
    impresarios, nothing seems to change, usually because they can't
    find the letter.
    This film charts some of their epic journeys to the brink of success
    and back again​

    BBC2

    11.00am Play School
    The Shepherds on the Hill, with Carol Chell, Carol Leader
    and Fred Harris

    11.25am Closedown

    3.10pm A Year in the Life of an Exmoor Man
    Tom Rook lives at Porlock on the edge of Exmoor. He has never
    lived anywhere else, and never wanted to. Over the years he has
    become an important member of the community that lives and
    works on the moor.
    The film follows Tom's year, from sheep-shearing to lambing, from
    puppy-walking to the hounds in full cry, from Porlock Show to the
    point-to-point - men and beasts move against the backdrop of the
    moor.
    Indeed, so deeply is Tom woven into that pattern of life, that the
    film emerges as a portrait of Exmoor itself, its wide slopes of bracken
    and heather, its secret coombes, and its people.​

    Where the Dream Begins (9/16)
    'I like this place in all its moods; I like the way it's been edited by wind
    and age.'
    The place is Dartmoor, the creative environment of Brian Carter, artist,
    writer and poet.
    Angela and Brian have in common a love of this austere landscape.
    Each, in their own way, has explored every corner of this wild, remote
    and beautiful countryside. Through his pictures, poetry and prose
    Brian recalls images of Dartmoor as it was in his boyhood. These
    were the days before the tourist when the moor was still a
    secret landscape - a dreamscape measured by the seasons,
    inhabited by characters like the badger, otter and the fox


    7.15pm News Summary, Weather

    7.25pm Ballet : The Nutcracker
    With Mikhail Baryshnikov and Gelsey Kirkland, with artists of the
    American Ballet Theatre.
    The National Philharmonic conducted by Kenneth Schermerhorn
    For his first major venture into choreography, Mikhail Baryshnikov chose
    one of the world's most popular ballets, The Nutcracker, to Tchaikovsky's
    enchanting score.
    Baryshnikov says of the ballet: 'It is more than the spirit of Christmas. It

    Sammy Davis , a former motor racer and journalist, recalls those

    Campbell's daughter Jean Wales has more personal memories
    of her brother Donald​
